Who We Are...
Welcome to the Moehling Christmas Tree Farm website. Among the White Pines and Spruces there are over three thousand (3,000) Oaks, Cypress and River Birch Trees. As you are out in search for the perfect Christmas tree we ask that you be careful of the little seedlings nearby. Once 60% of the Pines and Spruce are gone the land will become a nice hardwood forest for our future children and grandchildren to enjoy.
If you see hardwood trees being crowded by a Pine or Spruce, we would appreciate it if you would cut the pine on either side of it (if you like it.) This will help the hardwoods to grow strong. Please, if you cut down a tree, make sure that it is the one you keep. Avoid cutting into a tree and then leaving it for one you like better! Those trees do not make it to the next year.
There are over 14,000 trees planted on this 30 acre parcel. The back 15 acres was placed in a Land Conservatory with T.L.C. and will never be built on. This was done to preserve the great Wetland area and nice Oak Savanna.
Ways to have a safe and fun time:
NO AXES or CHAINSAWS- If you do not have a saw, we will provide you with a bow saw to cut down your tree.
ONLY ADULTS carry our saws.
The fields get muddy, plan ahead by wearing clothes that can get dirty. We recommend boots, hats and gloves.
Be careful of uneven ground and tree stumps.
Please be careful of the small trees please don't cut into the hardwood trees.
It helps to bring a tarp for dragging your tree from the field and to help protect your vehicle.
Allow plenty of time for your visit. Remember that it starts getting dark by 4pm in the winter and that we suggest you allow at least 1 1/2 hours for your visit. Pets are welcome as long as they are on a leash at all times, they are social and you pick up after there waste.
Make sure you say Hi to Raisin and Tippy! and the new pup Willow in the building when you have your coco. They are the farm dogs.
Note: The brown trees on the Property are Cypress Trees, they loose there needles every year.
