Trees for Troops
Trees for Troops is a program of the Christmas Spirit Foundation that provides Christmas trees for military familes. You can help provide a tree for a military family by visiting Sugargrove Tree Farm on the Trees for Troops Weekend, Saturday, December 5 or Sunday, December 6, and sponsoring a tree for $25. Click on the Trees for Troops logo above for more information. With your help we will send 100 Christmas trees to families serving our country on military bases in the United States.
Since 1984, many families have included a visit to Sugargrove Tree Farm in their Christmas season traditions. Many of their most delightful Christmas memories include the discovery of the perfect Christmas tree at our tree farm. We invite you to visit us and start your own family tradition and happy memories. Here is a picture that was taken in September 2015 of Fraser Fir trees ready for harvest this year.
The fun begins with the wagon ride into the fields. When your family has made a decision and you have cut the tree with saws we provide, one of our friendly drivers will come to the field to pick you up along with your tree, and return you to our heated barn for a cup of hot chocolate and a cookie. We'll unload your tree from the wagon, shake the dead needles out and bale it up to make it easier for you to get your tree home and set up. Beautiful wreaths and door swags are conveniently on display for your easy selection.
Horse drawn wagons
Your wagon ride to the field can be on a wagon pulled by a team of draft horses. We will have horse drawn wagon rides on the following days:
Wagon rides, saws, tree shaking, baling, hot chocolate, cookies and loading assistance are customer services we provide at no additional cost.
We grow four species of trees for use as Christmas trees: White Pine, Blue Spruce, Fraser Fir, and Canaan Fir. You don't need to know what you want when you arrive. We have samples of each species available, and we will be happy to help you decide which tree would be perfect for you and your family.
Convenience of Pre-Cut Trees
For those who do not wish to make a trip on the wagon to the field, pre-cut trees are available close to the barn for your convenience. We cut these trees weekly so that you can be sure that your pre-cut tree is as fresh as if you cut it yourself.
We also have Fraser Fir and Canaan Fir trees available that are dug and ready for planting in your yard after the holidays are over. We will provide you with instructions for having the tree in your house as well as planting guidelines.
