Sharing the Christmas Tradition:
72 Years of Growing Trees in Hamden!
Welcome to the 2018 Christmas tree season at Broken Arrow Nursery! 2018 marks our 72nd year of growing Christmas trees in Hamden. This year, our holiday season for tree and wreath sales runs from Saturday, November 17th until Christmas Eve.
You will find a good selection of trees at both our locations this year: 680 Evergreen Avenue and 13 Broken Arrow Road, both in northern Hamden!
The Jaynes family planted their first Christmas trees in 1947 as part of a 4-H project. We now have over 25 acres of trees at our two Hamden locations. Each farm has the same type of trees, but there are some differences:
680 Evergreen Avenue: large selection of Balsam and Fraser Fir, Colorado Blue Spruce, Concolor Fir, and White Pine.
13 Broken Arrow Road: large selection of Douglas Fir, Balsam Fir, and White Pine.
Plan your visit
A few helpful hints before you visit the farm:
• Measure the height of your ceiling. We have measuring poles to check the height of your tree.
• Find your tree stand and make sure it will fit the size tree you want.
• Wear appropriate shoes and clothing, especially if you plan on walking through the fields.
• We provide saws; no power saws of any kind are permitted.
• Keeps dogs on a leash.
If you don't want to choose and cut a tree from the field, both locations offer a large selection of premium pre-cut Fraser Fir, and White and Norway Spruce, ranging from table-top size to 10 feet tall (individually priced based on tree height).
We are well known for our hand-made wreaths crafted from unusual and traditional greens, such as holly and winterberry. Wreaths come in an assortment of shapes and sizes ranging from 12 to 48 inches wide. Pre-made wreaths can be picked up throughout the season or custom orders can be filled at any time.
To explore your inner creativity, attend one of our wreath-making workshops and produce your own gorgeous masterpiece.
Christmas tree stands; greens, roping, and other holiday decorating material; and a selection of live, potted trees are available at both locations.
