Well everyone, it looks like today was the closing day for Evergreen Valley this season. Weather forecasters are predicting heavy rain and freezing rain for Tuesday, so we will be closed on Tuesday the 23rd. We want to thank all of our friends, family and employees for all their help and hard work this season. They help to make sure your Christmas tree search is the best family experience possible. We hope that everyone has a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s. Please look out for our closing newsletter to come to your in-box soon.
The weather is supposed to be nice all weekend this weekend!! Finally!! Snow and then rain have made it a rough start to the Christmas season. Sun is predicted, so it should be perfect weather to pick out your perfect tree. Remember to wear boots and warm clothes. Our local artist is here this weekend selling her beautiful wood-burned ornaments.
Wow! We didn’t really believe the reports that this was going to be a rough winter, but snow before Thanksgiving…!!! That’s not a good sign of what may be to come.
Here at Evergreen Valley, we are ready! We are here to help you start the Christmas season no matter what the weather is doing! Our trees look more beautiful than ever and the snow will just add to the experience you will have with your family. Remember to dress the kids in snow suits because who can resist flopping down in the snow!! Wear your snow boots!! (No, not the sparkly Uggs!!)
We have a great view, eager tree cutters and lots of warm drinks waiting for you here at Evergreen Valley to help you get your Christmas season off to the best start.
Enjoy the turkey and trimmings today and come walk off those extra calories tomorrow looking for your perfect tree!
We have so much planned for this Christmas season!! The farm will look a little different this year if you have been with us for several years. We have cleared out many of the white pines and Scotch pines. They were getting so big we couldn’t even shear them any more!! Don’t worry, we planted more. This year, we have some white pines up to 14 ft and other varieties up to 12 feet. Santa will be visiting on the weekends and Eyes of the Wild will be coming on the 6th! Please join us for Travis Gale’s very entertaining and informative animal show. Check back for updates or visit us on FaceBook!! See you soon!!
Evergreen Valley family and staff would like thank all of our customers who came out this year. It was so exciting to see families who have been with us since the beginning. 5 years!! It is also great to meet new customers who come to us through referrals. There is no higher praise for us than to be referred by families who have had great experiences and great trees! We hope you all enjoyed the events we offered and time you spent with loved ones searching for that perfect tree. The Alpaugh family could not run the farm without the help of some great employees! We hope that as you become familiar with our tree cutters that you look for your favorite cutter each year. Thank you for coming and have a wonderful Christmas!!

We had a very busy weekend this first weekend of December. Santa visited us Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was a little muddy and Sunday was a bit cold (or really cold!). We had a great turn our for our Trees for Troops donations. Check our next newsletter for final totals. Thank you to everyone who donated. The trees will be sent by FedEx to MacDill Air Force base in Tampa, Florida.
We had some beautiful snow showers on Sunday. We had light flurries from 2:00 until about 3 and then about 4:00, we had some pretty heavy snow. You can see the flakes on the little birdhouse on the tree.
We welcomed back many familiar faces today- customers and tree cutters! It was great to see so many families who have been with us for each of the last 5 years! We hope you looked for your favorite tree cutter from last year and said “hi!” We look forward to seeing many more faces this weekend. Tomorrow, the 30th, Santa is scheduled to visit from about 10:30 till 2:00 and our local artist will bring her ornaments from 10 until 2. The wagon will be running and there will be more free hot chocolate ready. Evergreen Valley is bustling with activity and we can wait to be part of your family’s Christmas season!
NJ Christmas Tree Growers’ has added a really cute video to introduce you to Douglas FirReal, a real Christmas tree who would like to share with you his dream to be your Christmas tree and some great tree care tips. Check him out at the link below!
We hope you recognize some of the photos in the background as shots of Evergreen Valley!!
Here at Evergreen Valley, we are busy all year round!! Now that fall is beginning, we are digging evergreens for landscape trees. Our trees are beautifully shaped and ready to plant in your backyard. We have white pine, Norway spruce and blue spruce to provide privacy, act as living fences and to become natural erosion protection. If you are interested in landscape trees for your yard, check out the B&B page on this website.
We are also busy planning for the Christmas season. We are ordering wreaths, booking shows, and calling our tree cutters back in for training. We hope you are starting to think about the Christmas season and planning your visit back to Evergreen Valley Christmas Tree Farm. See you soon!!
