A Letter to Our Customers:
Over the last 5 years, we had had tremendous impacts from hurricanes, the flood of 2015. Unfortunately, the severe weather caused us to lose the majority of our trees over seven feet tall. We have received some negative feedback on facebook and we are disappointed to let down our customers, but mother nature has caused us to have limited trees for U-cut this year. The good news is we have planted heavily and have a great crop coming along that are 6 feet and under presently. We still invite families to come and spend a day in the country, regardless of whether you find a tree or not. It has been our pleasure to be a part of your families' traditions, we are sad to say this is the last year we will be open.
The Toogoodoo family.
Virginia Pine is a native to the South and one of the most widely grown Christmas trees. It has short needles, dense foliage, and a pleasant pine scent. Its strong branches make it an excellent choice for hanging heavy ornaments.
Eastern Red Cedar is the traditional native Christmas tree of the South. It has a wonderful cedar aroma and the foliage is quite dense but sometimes prickly. Due to its tendency to dry out even in water stands, it is recommended not cutting this tree until two to three weeks before Christmas.
Leyland Cypress is one of the most popular trees grown in the South for Christmas trees. This tree drops very few needles and with proper care, will easily stay fresh through the entire Christmas season. In addition to being a beautiful tree with soft foliage, it is grown from cuttings and does not produce pollen; therefore enabling many asthma suffers to enjoy a real tree in their home.
Carolina Sapphire and Blue Ice are varieties of the Arizona Cypress and two of the newest species developed for Christmas trees. Their foliage are blue green in color, soft to the touch, and very dense with an outstanding aroma. Due to their tendency to dry out even in water stands, it is recommended not cutting these trees until three to four weeks before Christmas.
Thuja Green Giant really shines when decorated. It is a full, yet natural looking tree that provides nice pockets for hanging ornaments. Thuja Green Giant's sweet aroma reminds us of sour apple candy. It also has good needle retention when kept in water.
