The first Noble seedlings at this site were planted in February 2004.  We started with 500 trees as an experiment.  In 2005, we followed with 1500 more Noble seedlings.  It was at this point I learned of the “Pocket Gopher” and the damage they can cause to seedling from both tunneling around and eating the roots of the trees.  Being competitive in nature, I did the only reasonable thing, bought a Kubota tractor and plowed the ground in preparation of the next planting sites.  In 2007, another 1500 seedling where planted.  In 2008, we planted an additional 5000 trrs, followed by sparatic replanting to back-fill.

All trees are cultured to retain their natural look, if we can get buy without trimming or regenerating a top (very infrequent), we will.  Minimal hand clipping has been applied to the trees.  Natural Cultured trees are more open than cultured trees that apply sheering techniques each year – they are excellent for presentation of your favorite Christmas tree ornaments.

Christmas 2011 was the first year we opened for U-Cut (One weekend).    This year (2021), we have enough trees to make it through 2-weekends, while giving our customers a good selection of trees...

We are U-CUT only operation - Kevin Thompson, Owner & Operator.
