We have now finished shaping the Christmas trees for this season. The crop looks really good, the rain during the summer helped the growth. Wholesale trees are being tagged and the Cut-Your_own fields look spectacular.

The staff at The Rocks Estate planted 7,200 young Christmas trees this spring. Using a mechanical auger, the trees were planted between larger trees which will be harvested in the next three years. This system provides shade protection for the smaller trees, which are about 4 years old.
Christmas trees are harvested when they are 10 to 15 years old, depending on the species.
