Having always wanting a Christmas tree farm, after buying the property finally I could make it happen. All that was require was effort and seedlings. So in the spring of 2013, we planted 1,500, 2-0 bare root White Spruce and Balsam Fir in a area we dedicated for Christmas Trees. Then in the Spring of 2014, we planted another 2,000 of them in another area. Our objective being for ours and our friends grandchildren to be able to come, select and harvest their own Christmas trees someday.  Those trees have not grown as anticipated until this past year. Now they are doing well. However, many of the advanced 3-2 Red Pine planted that same time have grown remarkably well. In December 2018, we selected and cut our first Christmas tree from what we had planted. It was a Red Pine but still worked just fine. In 2019, we had friends go to the camp for the first time with their grandchildren and cut their Christmas tree while we were already in Texas. My dream is turning into reality. Now in 2021 and 2022, I brought trees back to Texas with me after deer camp.
