At the Fresh Cut Tree Outlet, we offer the convenience of selecting a freshly cut tree in a variety of types and sizes without the hassle of cutting your own. We will also bale your tree for transportation at no additional expense to get you on your way home to decorate and enjoy your new tree.
Make a day of it! When the weather’s turned chilly, you’ll find all sorts of vendors at the Tree Farm to help make your Christmas tree choosing even more special. On weekends, food trucks pull up with pizza, popcorn, snacks and more to help make the occasion festive and fun for all!
Tree Care - What to do at home....
Once you get the tree home there are several things you need to do keep your tree in top shape.
1. Cut 1/4in. off the base of trunk if it has been more than 4 hours since it was cut. This fresh cut will create a free flow of water into the tree to preserve freshness.
2. Display your tree in a cool place out of a draft. Fireplaces can dry your tree prematurely.
3. Water, water, water! Trees are very thirsty and will use up to a gallon of water each day. Check the stand each day to check the water level. Don't let the water ever go below the fresh-cut base, ensuring that your tree keeps drinking and stays fresh. There's no need to add anything to the water either. Most experts insist that good old water is all you need to keep your tree fresh through Christmas.
Come to Geer Tree Farm for your Christmas tree this year and for years to come!
