Summer Meeting

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
