    Don't necessarily let the big box stores scare you out of a tree stand if you have a good location near one. Just sell higher quality trees.

    I have worked for a company that had a stand for the past couple of years that is on a main road with one H/D 1/4 mile north and another 1 mile south along with 2 local stands with in 2 miles of us also.

    This stand sells 750 trees along with grave blankets, wreaths etc. Sell out every year.

    If you do it make sure you have stands, plastic bags etc. the convenience things that will make you another 5 bucks.

    Scaby I would like a PM, but I'm not sure what a PM is and how to get to it. My E-Mail is shadybrookbfvt@yahoo.com. My brother and I have a landscape business and are interested in doing this next year. Thanks for all the help.

    first thing you need to do is pick a lot out. then find a supplier, get the permits needed from local govmts, get equipment needed for the lot and then sell. thats pretty much it in a nutshell. the details vary from county to county.

    if any of you guys have any questions please feel free to just pm me or send a email at anytime. i would be happy to help you guys out as much as i could.
