Families Begin Looking For The Perfect Christmas Tree

That festive feeling and the smell of Christmas trees are in the air.

Chuck Secord with the Yuletide Tree Farm in Upper Coverdale says they open as early as the first week in October, “People come out and they tag their trees and then they come back later when they are ready to put it up. People have been cutting now for the last two weeks.”

Secord says it was a perfect summer for growing on his farm, but that’s not always the case, “I usually plant between 1000 and 1400 each year but I lose a lot too because it is a hard go. The climate is changing and the summers seem to be warmer than they used to be. It’s a little harder on the seedlings.”

Secord says their busiest weekends are this coming weekend (November 26 and 27) and the first weekend of December.

He has this reminder for those who are cutting their own tree, “Take it home and put it in water right away. They’ll it’ll last a lot longer.”

Secord says it’s a very busy time of year for Yuletide Tree Farm, “We have seniors come out and enjoy the walk and pick out a tree and cut it down, and families with children. They like to be able to help pick out a tree and then, the wagon ride.”
