Christmas trees take 7-10 years to grow to the most popular size for a U-Cut (Choose & Cut) Christmas tree which is 5-8 feet tall. Two year old seedlings are planted, weeded, irrigated and shaped each year to prepare them for your Christmas shopping adventure. The trees take constant attention to keep them healthy and growing. We hire high school kids each summer to prune and shape the u-cut trees. After the hard work they are happy to go back to school!

The holiday adventure of cutting your own Christmas tree

PORT ANGELES — Got the car keys? Check. Kids all bundled up? Check.

You’re ready to go cut down your own Christmas tree.

There are a variety of options and locations where North Olympic Peninsula residents can cut and haul home their own Christmas trees.

Ann Johnson, who owns Lazy J Farm with her husband, Steve, said their cut-your-own operation was busy.

“Oh, we’ve got the apple cider and the fire ring going to warm up,” she said. “Three, four, five trucks just pulled in as I’m talking.”

If you’re heading to Lazy J at 225 Gehrke Road, Port Angeles, all you need to bring is a smile, Johnson said.

Care for your Freshly Cut Christmas Tree

  • The History of Christmas Trees

    Prepare the Tree: Make a fresh cut on the base of the trunk to remove the natural seal that forms if it is not placed in water shortly after being cut. The amount to cut off can vary depending on how soon you can place the cut tree into fresh water. The fresh-cut surface should appear creamy-white, not yellow or brown.
  • Water is the Key: Place the tree in a stand which will hold at least one gallon of water or check the water level more than once a day. An average tree may consume between two pints and a gallon of water per day. If the water level drops below the butt, a new seal will form which prevents the tree from taking up more water. Water consumption is related to butt diameter and not to height.
  • Delays: If the tree is not going into the house soon after purchase, it should be stored in a bucket of water on a cool porch or patio away from wind and sun.
  • Lights: Use the smallest Christmas lights possible to prevent any build-up of heat. The new LED lights are a good choice.
  • Tree Placement: Place the tree away from heat sources such as vents, fireplaces, radiators or sunny windows.
  • Create a memory: Shopping for and using a fresh, natural Christmas tree creates a connection to the traditions of Christmas that can make your family memories endure. Remember the simple beauty of the birth of Jesus as you make your family traditions.
