The family started planting trees in 2006 and now more than 10,000 trees dot the landscape on the lovely eight acres. Pre-cut or cut-your-own trees include several fir varieties, Norway Spruce, Colorado Blue Spruce, and White Pine. You'll also find other Christmas decorations, such as handmade wreaths and swags.
