Summer Meeting 2023

July 25-27, 2023

Join us for the MCTA Summer meeting at Needlefast Evergreen Inc., a 3rd generation farm located in Ludington, just a few miles from the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan. Attendees will get a behind the scenes look at both their nursery and field grown Christmas tree operations. Needlefast’s nursery operations provide an opportunity for Christmas tree growers to learn what goes on ‘under the hood’ to produce those baby trees that start your plantations. A unique bonus will include touring Needlefast’s u-pick strawberry production area.

Field tours during the meeting will include Needlefast production areas and Michigan State University educational sessions including:

  • Improve sprayer effectiveness through proper calibration
  • Viewing the newest technology for irrigation scheduling
  • Get a leg up on pests through a summer scouting program
  • Updates on dear repellents
  • Learn the in’s and out’s of Mycorrhizae

Choosing the right Christmas tree

Michigan Christmas tree farms and tree lots offer an array of great Christmas tree choices for anyone. Whether you look for a pre-cut tree at a local tree lot or bundle up the family for the choose-and-cut experience, you will find a wide variety of tree types that offer something for everyone. To help you pick the perfect tree, Michigan State University Extension has developed a description of the main types of trees grown in Michigan.

What is your tree personality?

Take our fun personality quiz and find out what kind of real tree you are!

The scent of a real Christmas tree in the house, the allure of a family outing to select a real tree and the appeal of buying local are among the reasons people buy real Christmas trees from Christmas Tree farms. For some, especially people who grew up in households with an artificial tree, buying and setting up a real tree may seem like daunting task. With a little planning, however, having a real tree can add a fun and enjoyable family experience to the holidays.
