Deer Path Tree Farm
Christmas Tree Farm
As opposed to the artificial plastic trees, the fresh quality trees on the farm are fuller. They boast a wonderful scent, as they are free of chemicals that can cause breathing and other respiratory issues. The carbon footprint that these plastic Christmas trees leave is more than 10 times the real trees. Happiness at the cost of survival is always the wrong choice!
Christmas Trees in New Jersey
Christmas is a time where families and friends reunite. This reunion can be made more wholesome with an opportunity to choose and cut the tree together before you bedeck it. You can turn it into a family event to extend the joyous family get-together.
You get to pick your own tree with the choice and efforts of all the family members that increase the tree’s sentimental value. The real Christmas trees bring warmth, beauty, and rich scents to your home in the holiday season to enhance your holiday experience.
Deer Path Tree Farm is located in Readington Township in beautiful Hunterdon County, New Jersey. The farm has been owned and operated by the Kousoulis family for over 30 years. All trees are 100% organic and grown without the use of any pesticides or chemicals. There are over 3,000 trees spread on 7 acres of land and the stock is replanted and replenished on an annual basis. All trees can be purchased live (with the roots to replant elsewhere) or cut. Although we do not deliver your tree, we can assist to arrange delivery with a flatbed trailer if needed and for an additional cost. Trees are available from 5ft up to 50 ft! We have Blue Spruce, Norway Spruce, Douglas Fir, and other types available based on your personal preference.
The most important part of selecting a tree is not its size and shape, but rather finding one that will pose the least risk to the health of your family and the environment. Thus, the safest holiday choice for you and yours is purchasing an organic tree as opposed to one that is artificial or grown using harsh chemical methods. In the United States in 2018, 33 million Christmas trees were purchased. Organic Christmas trees, which follow the same U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) organic standards as agricultural crops, make up less than 1% of all Christmas trees farmed making them difficult to find. At Deer Path Tree Farm, every single one of the 3,000 trees on the farm are all organic.
Caring For Your Tree
Once you have brought your organic tree back to your home, it is important to give it proper care and attention so it remains fresh:
Make a fresh cut to remove about a 1/2-inch of wood from the base of the trunk before putting the tree in the stand. Do not cut the trunk at an angle, or into a V-shape. This makes it more difficult to hold the tree in the stand and also reduces the amount of water available to the tree.
Use a stand that fits your tree. The outer layers of wood are the most efficient in taking up water and should not be removed. Also make sure the stand can hold enough water. Stands should provide 1 quart of water per inch of stem diameter.
When it’s time to decorate, string lights that produce low heat, which will reduce drying of the tree.
The Christmas Tree Farm in New Jersey does not use any chemical or pesticide on the trees that can cause you health issues. The organic trees are replaced and replanted so that you don’t have to worry about deforestation. The Christmas trees are part of the horticultural crop and are not felled from the pre-existing forests.
Have a sustainable and healthy Christmas!
