We are once again offering early Christmas tree marking/reservation on tree fields adjacent to Oak Shade Farm from 9AM to 4PM on the weekends of November 9/10, 16/17 and 23/24 as well as December 7/8. The trees available for marking are all short-needle varieties, mainly spruces.
Here’s how it works if you want to visit the marking fields at the Day farm:
-Visit us on any of the dates noted above.
-Mark the tree you like and pay for it – Prices for these trees start at $65.
-Lastly, tell us which day you would like to pick it up.
Here’s how it works if you want to visit the marking fields at Waterford Run Farm:
-Contact email@example.com or Claire Mello 540-272-9711 to schedule a time.
We will cut your tree, bundle it and deliver it to Oak Shade Farm, 14455 Waterford Run Lane, for pick-up on any date during our regular Christmas season, from November 29th to December 24th. Of course, you may take your tree the same day you select it.
Remember though – the later you cut your tree the better it will look at Christmas. Needle drop is a problem in spruce trees cut more than 4 weeks ahead.
If you have any questions, please send them our way: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Tree Care Tips: When you get your tree home be sure to place it immediately into a bucket of water and keep it supplied with water. Your tree will take up lots of water the first few days. If you are storing your tree outside before you put it up in your house, be sure to keep it in a cool, sheltered place, out of the sun and wind. Inside – set up your tree away from heating vents, and far from woodstoves and fireplaces. Add water daily.
