Many people believe it takes very little to grow a Christmas tree. While that may have been true 50 years ago when trees were cut in the forest, it certainly is not the case now that trees are being specifically grown as a crop.
There are many problems that can attack a Christmas tree field and it takes continual vigilance and research to stay ahead of those problems.
Because our trees are planted mainly on slopes, it is a constant challenge to spray with equipment that is both efficient and safe. Our goal at Windy Knoll is to produce the highest quality tree possible and as such we are very diligent in the spraying of our fields.
