Tree farms prepare for holiday rush

Thanksgiving is well over a week away, but area Christmas tree farms are already in the holiday spirit. Wisconsin is home to over 1,300 Christmas tree farms, including more than a half dozen located in Door and Kewaunee Counties. Aissen Tree Farm in Pilsen needed to turn away people during their open house over the weekend out of concern for the trees lasting all the way to Santa’s visit. Having walked past the hundreds of the trees ready for customers to cut down, owner Tammy Aissen says newly installed tile lines protected some trees from oversaturation.

Aissen says with proper care, trees could last in the home between three and five weeks.
