This year we have four varieties of Leyland Cypress. The Murray is a darker green with stronger branches, less dense foliage and more aroma than the classic Leyland. Naylor's Blue is droopy with stronger branches and dense blue/green foliage. Castlewellan Gold has a golden yellow tent. We also have Thuja Green Giant. They are similar to Leyland, except are more open with stronger branches, more aroma and stay fresh even longer than Leyland. We use Thuja foliage in our fresh wreaths, because it stays fresh so long. We have White Pine 5 to 8 ft and some larger, 12 to 15 ft. We have all sizes of Virginia Pine, 5 to 14 ft. Eastern Red Cedar 5 to 8 ft. and Carolina Sapphire up to 9 ft. The tree size is measured from the ground to the highest point that will support a tree top ornament and rounded down to the nearest half-foot. We will also have precut Fraser fir, 5 to 12 ft. They will arrive the Saturday before Thanksgiving.

Payment - We accept Master Card, Visa, Discover, American Express and many bank debit cards as well as cash and checks.

Return Policy - Not every tree is right for every customer. Some trees are sticky or prickly to the touch. Some have a strong aroma and others have almost no smell. Like flowers, all trees should be kept in water, but occasionally a tree will stop absorbing water and become dry before it should. Red Cedar do not last long, so we ask that no one cut a Red Cedar earlier than 2 weeks before Christmas. If you find that the tree you selected is not right for you, bring it back and exchange it for a tree of equal value. We do not give refunds, so try to make sure the tree you select is the right tree before cutting.

History - Homestead Christmas Tree Farm was started in 1979. When we bought the farm in 1992, Virginia Pine was the most popular Southern Christmas tree. Virginia Pine was in all of the fields with some Leyland Cypress planted near the woods. The deer eat the top out of the Leyland, so they took a long time to become large enough for Christmas trees. We've planted some of every tree that has been recommended for a Southern Christmas tree. Now Leyland Cypress is our most popular tree, but the Virginia pine is still a popular choice. For us working at the farm requires a lot of hard work. Visiting with customers that we only see once a year is quite enjoyable. We look forward to seeing you again this year and have a Merry Christmas.
