November at Maple Hollow Tree Farm

We open the day after Thanksgiving – Friday, November 27, 2020! For the safety of our staff, family, and customers, we will be instituting a number of measures recommended by the CT Department of Agriculture. Please see below:

  • Number of customers on the farm will be limited at one time
  • Wait times during peak hours will increase. We will have staff on hand at the end of Carpenter Road (at Rt.219) to alert customers to wait times;
  • Number of customers in the shop at one time will be limited;
  • Masks will be required at all times;
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be available at several locations in the parking and sales area;
  • All saws and tree carts will be regularly sanitized;
  • We are asking you to please utilize social distancing in the field as you walk around and find a tree – please keep distance between yourselves and other customers;
  • It’s a Bring-Your-Own hot chocolate kind of year! Unfortunately, we cannot feasibly offer hot chocolate, candy canes or snowman poop in a way we feel is comfortably safe. We too are disappointed about this. We really hope that next year things will be back to normal.

We appreciate your understanding and patience through this. As a small, family-run operation we have the safety and well-being of our staff, family and all of you at the top of mind. We know this season won’t be easy, but we look forward to being a part of your holiday tradition again this year – and for years to come. Thank you! Be safe, and Merry Christmas!

A Year in the Life

November 4, 2018

Spruce BudsIt’s easy to think that the Christmas Tree always looks as it does at the holidays – sturdy, symmetrical, straight.  But the year in the life of your tree is anything but static.

After a long, dormant winter, your tree begins to wake up – slowly at first, with the buds at the end of branches swelling as the days grow longer.

May approaches, and the warm days increase.  The buds finally break in April, May and June depending on the type of tree.  By the time the grass is ready to cut, the new shoots of your tree can be as long as a finger and growing fast.

Shaggy Fir


At summer solstice approaches, your tree is a wild, shaggy thing – think of a plant with bedhead.  But by the end of July, the tree you know so well in December begins to take shape. The branches stiffen and the leader points straight to the sky.  With summer at its peak, shearing and pruning can begin.










Through the growing season all sorts of creatures will temporarily call your tree home.  Birds and paper wasps build homes in the limbs. Turkey’s will hunker down under the lowest branches.  Sometimes you find a visitor you’d least expect. Garter Snake

Eventually, they all move on.  By the time the washboard skies of November set in, the trees have been sheared, the field grass has gone brittle and the land prepares for another winter.  Your tree is waiting for you. washboard sky
