Reed Island Farm grows ECO-Friendly Christmas trees!!
What is an ECO-Friendly tree?
While there is no official standard, we feel that our trees meet the test of being grown in a way that impacts our environment in a positive manner.
We don't use any pesticides in any way on our farm. Instead, we use a program of beneficial insects, along with a mowing schedule that allows these insects to create their own ecosystem.
In so doing we have encouraged an ever-growing population of songbirds, swifts, and hummingbirds, as well as praying mantis and ladybugs. Our other beneficial insects are not so recognizable, but they do their jobs!
This has also resulted in a healthy environment for other wildlife, our creek, our pets, and ourselves.
We have had customers who have claimed to be 'allergic' to fresh-cut Christmas trees. After encouraging them to try ours, they have become loyal customers! Nothing is ever sprayed on our trees, and no harmful chemicals have ever touched them!
If you think an ECO-Friendly tree is right for you,
please come and pick one out for your holiday!
Summertime wildflowers and "weeds" make a lovely sight in our tree fields,
as well as providing habitat for our beneficial insects.
