Do any of you guys sell christmas trees in winter? How much does an order of about 200-300 cost, or is the minimun larger than that? Is it real money maker or not worth it in the long run? Im thinking of doing this this winter but would like some advice. Thanks in advance

1. Why will people buy your trees instead of Ed's at Brock Farms?
2. There is no such a thing as a good cheap tree. Cheap trees are money wasters that you will throw away.
3. Small trees are money wasters...7-8' is standard.
4. 500-600 good trees on a truck. Buy less than a truck and you will be at the bottom of the pecking order for freight deliveries.
5. Fraser fir #1 seller from NC. Balsam #2 seller from Nova Scotia or Quebec.
6. Buy a lesser quality than premiums and just burn your money up now.
7. Will 200 trees with a gross profit of $15-20 per tree be able to cover your expenses and time standing in a lot every evening and all weekends for a 2 week period? I don't think so.
