What happens after Christmas?

Christmas 2019 is done, and the tree farm is having its time of rest. So what do we do now? Well, for the months of January through March we have a nice breather. The boys and I spend a lot of time walking through the trees all winter. We watch for damage from rodents or deer, keep an eye on how last year’s newly planted trees are faring, and enjoy the slower pace.

Come March, though, stump grinding begins in earnest. All those trees you are enjoying now left behind stumps that need to be ground down before the mowers start up.

Until then, we will just enjoy the snowy days.

Have a wonderful 2020!
