Families are establishing a Real Tradtion all across Ontario. All members of the family take a trip to their favourite Harvest Your Own Christmas Tree farm. Near all major urban areas there are a large number of Real Tree farms. These can vary from large farms with many different available activities to small farms which sell a few trees to their regular customers.
On a well-managed Christmas tree farm, ninety percent of the land is occupied by vigorously growing tree crops at all times. Grass grows between the rows of trees. With an average tree production cycle of ten years, counted from the time a seedling is planted, this ensures the farmer a regular annual crop ready for harvest
