  • Tree farm business picks up for holidays

The National Fire Protection Association reports that more than 200 home fires each year start with a Christmas tree. Good test: The needles are green and don't fall off when touched. "They also love that fresh pine smell". "They are all going to be different shapes and sizes".

Including trees donated by Wahmhoff Farms Nursery and its customers, over 780 trees were donated from Michigan tree farms, including Mathisen Tree Farm, of Greenville; Farnsworth Tree Farm, of Greenville; Korson's Tree Farm, of Sidney; Janke Tree Farm, of Allegan; Badger Evergreen Nursery, of Allegan; Armintrout's West Michigan Farm, of Allegan; Tannenbaum Farms, of Mason; and Gwinn's Christmas Tree Farm, of Horton.

"It's interesting watching everyone trying to beat each other for the first pick of the trees", Bruce said. Scotch pine is quite strong and will hold heavy ornaments easily; white pine is more flexible and may not support the heaviest ornaments. They tend to have a symmetrical growth habit and hold the heaviest ornaments without complaint.

All of Absher's trees are freshly cut upon selling, and he brings in more as they get sold off the lot.

"Back in 2014, we recognised there was very much a trend for artificial trees at that time that were very stripped out and minimalist, following a Scandinavian approach, where you could see the light coming through between the branches. They're kind of the best", said Gabriel Maki, a tree and shrub manager at Swanson's Nursery in Ballard.

Whether you go to a tree farm (check local papers for farms close to here) or a tree lot do not forget to make it a fun adventure.

If you are going to attempt to trim back your own tree, there are rules about pruning. The longer the tree is indoors, the greater the risk of it drying out. If possible, close heat vents in that room to keep it cooler.

For many people, the fragrances of the festive season are part of the appeal, so think about whether you want your tree to be scented. This will reduce your after-holiday needle cleanup to practically nothing.

"There's a lot that you can't get in a box", said Worthey. If the base is allowed to dry for six hours or so, the sap will seal off the vascular system and you will need to recut the base, something that may not be easy once the tree has been decorated. The Senate tree will be set up at 9:30 a.m., and the House tree will be delivered to its chamber at 10.
