This is a very popular tree for the Holidays! It has a wonderful citrus pine smell and stays fresh for a long time. These trees have been carefully harvested from our own San Juan National Forest so will be fresher, longer. The harvest of these trees is from an area that needed some thinning to help with fire mitigation. Your purchase helps the San Juan Mountains Association and the Forest. Just choose your size in the drop down menu and we will notify you when it will be ready for pick up.
