Come buy your PERFECT Christmas Tree at our special event.
Let’s face it, its no fun going to the gas station parking lot to pick out your tree! So Charmingfare wants to make it a fun, family tradition!
The Christmas Tree Spree is a great event. You can spend the day at the farm…. exploring all the farm animals! The Hands on Petting Zoo, Pony Ride*…. a cozy warm campfire, roasting marshmallows*, making Smores* and of course enjoy the hot cocoa!
To cap off your time at the farm, you’ll have lots of trees to choose from. They’re fresh and harvested within days of coming to the farm! You can choose from Fraser Firs, which have dark green needles, usually a half to an inch long. These trees have a wonderful scent, and are noted for good needle retention.
We’ll also have Balsam Firs. These trees have short, long lasting needles that give a soft feathery appearance. A dark green color with a silvery cast, these trees are also fragrant and probably the most recognized Christmas tree. Our staff with help you choose, offer advice and make sure you go home with a lovely tree and the knowledge of how to maintain it throughout the entire season!

Taking care of your Tree
The average Christmas tree with proper care should last 6 weeks. Once you have decided on your tree our staff will make a fresh cut. We will trim to height you choose or take about one-fourth to one-half of an inch from the bottom base of the tree. It takes about 6 hours for the base to sap over making a seal which, in turn makes it harder for the tree to absorb water. We strongly recommend once you get your tree home place it outside in a five gallon pail of water overnight. You do not need to add any of those home remedies you hear about such as aspirin or seven up. The next best thing you can do for your tree to select a good tree stand that will hold a large amount of water. The average tree can consume up to a gallon of water per day. You should check the level of water in your tree stand daily this will help to maintain the freshness and aroma of your live Christmas tree this holiday season.
Real Christmas Trees are Environmentally Friendly
Christmas trees are renewable, recyclable natural product. Real Christmas Trees are actually grown as crops, just like corn or wheat, and raised on a farm. Once they are harvested, up to 3 seedlings are planted to replace harvested trees on most farms. Therefore, there are actually more and more trees every year, not less. On average Christmas Tree farmers planted 70 million new Christmas Trees on farms throughout North America each year. These trees would NOT have been planted if trees hadn’t been harvested the previous year. It is much better environmentally to use a natural, organic crop and be sure to recycle your tree after the holidays.
