Below you will find our selection of available Christmas tree varieties. One of these is sure to be the right tree for your home this holiday season!
What kind of tree should I buy?
Are you overwhelmed at trying to choose the tree that is right for you? Try reading the descriptions below for some help, or answer these questions below;
Do you have heavy metal or homemade ornaments? (Fir trees have strong branching to support heavier ornaments)
Do you have anyone in your home with evergreen allergies? (White pine is the most allergenic of our tree choices)
Is cost a factor for you? (Naturally because of the difference in growth rate, Firs are more expensive than Pine.)
Why a REAL Tree?
Some have real concerns over the concept of using a fresh-cut Christmas Tree in their home. Here we'll try and put some of those more common "myths" to a rest.
"We're destroying forest regions that are home to many animal habitats."
False, over 98% of Christmas Trees sold throughout the nation are grown ON Tree farms with the express purpose of harvesting them for use as a Christmas Tree.
"Cutting down a REAL tree is a wasteful concept, as they end up in landfills."
While it is true that most cities offer free Tree pickup one or two days a year after the Christmas season, most of those trees actually end up being chipped, not thrown away. Did you miss that free pick-up day? We at Handy Andy's are also willing to take back your tree once you're finished with it. Here we run them through a wood chipper and turn them into mulch that is used to enrich soil we use to provide you with quality plant products. It's a renewable resource.
While the tree was growing, it was home to many animals, even though it was grown on a tree farm. As many as 3 to 5 trees are planted to replace the tree that is harvested.
Lastly, you're supporting an industry that creates jobs. The care and maintenance of these trees to ensure they are the right shape and grown well, provides jobs to many individuals.
**Truthfully, buying a fake plastic tree is actually more detrimental to the environment than a real tree**
In addition to our selection of Christmas Trees we have available, we also have a great selection of fresh Garland, wreaths, and boughs to decorate your outdoor pots as well as your indoor environment.
Our selection of garlands are sold by the lineal foot. Cut to order. There will be 3 choices for Garland this year;

Douglas & Cedar Mixed Garland
Western Red Cedar Garland
Below you will find pictured a few of our wreaths that will be available. We will also have Fraser Fir and Balsam Fir wreaths that are not pictured below.
