He said the demand for their Christmas trees is growing faster than the trees themselves.
Christmas trees take about eight years to grow, Young said. He explained he has 26,000 spots in the field but tries to sell about 1/8 of their trees each year to sustain the business.
The tree farm has four main types of trees including Concolor Fir, White Pine, Norway Spruce and Canaan Fir, which is the most popular, Young said. Prices start at $75 and depending on size and variety, go up to $105.
Young said he enjoys being a part of a holiday tradition for many families.
“It’s fun to see families come out and the kids select the tree and then we help put it on the car and send them home,” Young said. “What we’re trying to do here is create an opportunity for families to spend the day together and have a nice experience.”
The tree farm also has pre-cut trees and a gift shop that does not require reservations. The gift shop will be open noon to 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 25 and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 26 and Sunday, Nov. 27. The hours will be the same the following weekend.
