Tree Planting Has Begun

Leave a comment

Along with the Robins and Daffodils a sure sign of Spring is when the farmers at Jones Family Farms start planting the baby Christmas trees among the 400 acres of the farm.

So, how do we ‘urge’ these trees out of their cozy little nursery? We use a big tractor and a lot of human power!

Watch this video showing us “undercutting” the trees from our nursery so that we can transplant them in our tree fields.
