Work During the Year

What we do during the year

Planting

mar_plantIn March when the soil has begun to dry, Martin prepares the ground for planting. He selects only the very best plants. He is seen here examining a 3-year old Noble Fir plant prior to planting. It will take another 8 years before the plant will be a 2-meter high Christmas tree.

Pruning

The trees that Martin is pruning here are about 6 feet in height and, when they  have put on their new foliage and new leader, will be ready to harvest next Christmas
