We start right at the very beginning to create a tree exceptional enough to earn the title of Michigan Snowfresh Christmas Tree. Michigan’s excellent soil conditions and climate, along with experienced and knowledgeable growers and a well-established seedling industry, make is possible for Michigan Snowfresh growers to begin nuturing the Snowfresh tree as early as the seedling stage. This greater level of care at the beginning means that you, the buyer, will be able to count on a growing supply of Michigan Snowfresh Christmas Trees for years to come.
As the Michigan Snowfresh Christmas Tree grows, it is continually cared for to insure that it will live up to the rigid standards of Michigan Snowfresh. A regiment of regular care, including soil and vegetation management, insect and disease protection and tree cultural practices, is followed to create and maintain an ideal condition for the trees to grow. But Michigan Snowfresh Trees must not only be healthier, they must also look better than other trees. To insure a full, well-shaped tree, growers of Michigan Snowfresh Trees begin trimming and shaping a Michigan Snowfresh Tree very early in the life of the tree. This process is continued throughout the year of harvest to deliver to you a perfectly shaped tree.
By guaranteeing an ideal growing environment and early trimming/shaping, Michigan Snowfresh Growers can guarantee you, the retailer or broker, a supply of Michigan Snowfresh Trees that are fresher, look better, have greater needle retention, and ultimately a much greater consumer appeal.
