Christmas tree perfection

Christmas tree perfection


What a lot of people don’t realize is
that from seed to an actual seven-foot Christmas tree it takes about 15 years,
and we do the whole process here. So when I walk into a field of 7-foot Christmas
trees that are ready to go that year it’s a tremendous feeling of
accomplishment because there’s been all sorts of adversity to getting those
trees from seed to somebody’s living room. It’s quite satisfying to see them
in there in their final state ready to go and of course they bring a lot of
happiness to families and that’s nice for us as well.
Somerville Nurseries Inc started basically in 1950 when my father started
planting Christmas trees on lands that his great-grandfather had accumulated in
the late 18th century and early 19th century. We’re actually very fortunate to
be still planting Christmas trees on some land so we’ve had since the turn of
the century. Now this year we’ll be ringing in about a hundred and sixty
thousand trees and then from here they all go on their outgoing trucks to the
various stages of the market where they’re going. People mainly in urban
areas live a very busy, active life and I know Christmas is kind of a stressful
time, and I think when I go out visiting customers and I see people going in and
taking time and finding that perfect tree that they like and taking it home
it brings a lot of satisfaction to me and joy to me to see that they’re
actually enjoying something that we’ve taken so long to produce.
