I would look for quality trees....... do your homework and know what to look for in a healthy tree,,,,,,,,,,,,, If you buy low quality trees this year you might have good sales...... but you wont see many repeat customers next season.

Here is a link to New York Christmas Tree Growers Association
http://christmastreesny.org/ I am sure you can find wholesale trees on that site. I see you are close to Connecticut,,,,,,, google their tree growers association as well................

Good Luck

North Carolina Fraser Fir's are the Cadillac of Christmas trees. Great needle retention, good branching, dense foliage and that oh so wonderful fragrance.

I have been growing and selling Christmas trees for years and Fraser Fir is by far the money maker on my lots.
