Sharing the Christmas Tradition: 70 Years
Welcome to the 2016 Christmas tree season at Broken Arrow Nursery! 2016 marks our 70th year of growing Christmas trees in Hamden. This year, our holiday season for tree and wreath sales runs from Saturday, November 19th until Christmas Eve.
You will find the BEST SELECTION of trees at 680 EVERGREEN AVENUE, 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 two Hamden locations: 13 Broken Arrow Road and 680 Evergreen Avenue. Plan on visiting the Evergreen Avenue location for the best selection of trees in 2016; besides a wide selection of balsam and fraser firs, we have plenty of Colorado blue spruce, white pine, and Douglas and concolor fir at this site. We have many beautiful trees at Evergreen Avenue, including trees of all types up to 10 feet, with some up to 12 feet tall (Douglas fir and white pine). We also have an abundant supply of some gorgeous “exotic” firs at the Evergreen Avenue farm, including Veitch, Nikko, Korean, King Boris, and Veitch x balsam hybrids. Come check them out!
A good selection of balsam fir and Colorado blue spruce can be found at 13 Broken Arrow Road.
Santa will be visiting on the first and second weekends of December. Watch our Instagram and Facebook postings for details.
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, balsam, and Douglas fir 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. A variety of centerpieces and other handcrafted holiday decorations are also available, all made by Broken Arrow Nursery staff or local artisans.
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.
