Sharing the Christmas Tradition: 73 Years of Growing Christmas Trees in Hamden!
Thank you to all our Christmas tree customers for visiting us during the 2019 holiday season and for sharing part of your Christmas tradition with Broken Arrow Nursery! It is a pleasure for us to help you and your family have an enjoyable experience at our farm. Mother Nature through a few challenges our way this past season, with ice coating trees and our pathways for multiple days. This made early December a little challenging for Christmas tree shopping but we hope that most of our customers found what they needed from our tree and wreath selection. We’ll work from now through November getting ready for the 2020 Christmas sales season: cleaning up the fields, planting new seedlings, pruning, fertilizing, and mowing. When we open our doors for Christmas tree sales in November, we’ll be ready with more beautiful trees and wreaths for your enjoyment!
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:
13 Broken Arrow Road: large selection of Douglas Fir and Balsam Fir.
680 Evergreen Avenue: large selection of Balsam and Fraser Fir, Colorado Blue Spruce, Concolor 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 have a limited number of pre-cut trees between 10 and 15 feet tall - primarily Balsam Fir, White Pine, and Norway Spruce.
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.
Christmas tree stands; greens, roping, and other holiday decorating material; and a selection of live, potted trees are available at both locations.
