For those who are thinking of going into the Christmas Trees business or doing it for pleasure, this is a very informative book, easy to understand and visualize. The 178 plus pages go really fast, I read the book in two days and now I'm keeping it as a reference. Lot's of good knowledge gathered from different professionals in the Christmas Trees business. The book goes from "Selecting Land" and "Species to Grow" to "Going to Market", and "Profit and Taxes". The progression of this book makes for an easy understandable read and guides you from start to finish.

  • Uaha
This book is a solid reference and a must have for those who plan on embarking on the road to becoming a Christmas Tree farmer. Well laid out and clear. Regardless of the topic, all relevant even today.
  • Geny
Book covered a majority of topics that should be considered when starting a tree farm. I would highly recommend it.
  • Phenade
A lot of good and useful information can be had from this book. I would recommend this book to anyone starting in the "field" of Christmas tree growing, (excuse the pun). Personally, I preferred the book by Lewis Hill on this suject as that book is a little more fun to read than this was at times. This book also sports many dated black and white pictures. The information is of course current, but you will know right away that this book was written and compiled during the 1960's vs. modern day. Don't let these minor criticisms stop you from getting this book though. As I said, a lot of good info. is available and it stands as a good reference for this subject.
