Pack the whole family into the car and come on out to 4D Farm. We’re just 30 minutes west of Fort Worth.
Here you can choose from several native varieties and cut down your own special Christmas tree.
You don't have to bring a thing. We supply everything you'll need, from the saw to the tie down string.
And if you want, we can even cut it down for you so you won't have to lift a finger.
Or if you prefer a more traditional Christmas tree, we offer pre-cut Frasier Firs and other varities.
When you're done, or while you're waiting, hop on the back of the tractor for a holiday hayride, shop our artisan holiday market or just sit back and relax while sipping hot cocoa and eating delicious homemade holiday cookies!
4D Farm is one of the first tree farms in Texas to grow and sell the "Blue Ice" Arizona Cypress (Cupressus glabra) for Christmas Trees. It is light textured with soft silver blue to blue-green needles. Its trunk is also colorful, with copper-colored mottling. Come and see its wonderful blue color and smell its fresh citrus scent!
Leyland Cypress (Cupressocyparis leylandi) a hybrid of the Alaska Cedar and Monterey Cypress, is the South's newest Christmas tree. It has pleasing medium green sprigs of foliage that form long ascending branches. It is a pleasant alternative for those who do not prefer a pine-scented tree. It also seems to cause little, if any, problems for those with allergies.
Fraser fir (abies fraseri) are prized by many as Christmas trees. The branches turn slightly upward. They have good form and needle-retention. They are dark blue-green in color and have a pleasant scent.
Wreaths: Fraser Fir wreaths for sale.
Bows: Bows available for sale.
The needles should be resilient.
Run your fingers down a branch.
The needles should adhere to the branch and not fall off in your hand.
The needles should be flexible, not brittle.
The tree should have a good fragrance and an attractive green color.
Limbs should be strong enough to hold ornaments and strings of lights.
Make a fresh cut on the trunk to open up the pores that have been clogged by sap. Cut off at least one-half inch. The fresh-cut surface should be a creamy-white color. If you do not make a fresh cut, the tree will not be able to drink water. After the cut is made, put the tree in water as soon as possible. The longer the time between when the tree is given a fresh cut and when it is put into the water, the less ability the tree has to absorb water. Even if a hole is drilled to accommodate a pin-type stand, a fresh cut also should be made on the butt of the trunk.
Check the stand for leaks. Place the tree in a sturdy stand that will hold at least one gallon of water. Fill with plain water. If the tree is not going into the house soon after purchase, it should be stored in a bucket of clear water on a cool porch or patio away from wind and sun in warm climates and protected from freezing and wind in cold climates.
An average tree may consume between a quart and a gallon of water per day. If the water level drops below the cut end of the trunk, a seal will form and the tree will absorb no more water unless another fresh cut is made. So don't forget to add water every day.
Place the tree away from heat sources such as heating vents, fireplaces, wood stoves, heaters, or direct sunlight.
Miniature lights produce much less heat and reduce the drying effect upon a tree than bigger bulbs. Always check light sets for frayed or cracked wire insulation and broken sockets before placing them on a tree. Do not attempt to repair a worn light set. Throw it away and buy a new set. Do not overload electrical circuits. Always turn off the lights of your tree when leaving your house or retiring for the night.
After Christmas, before the tree dies, remove it from the house for recycling or pick up by your local disposal service. You may also want to check for your local chipping and composting program with the parks and recreation department, local nursery or service organization.
In this age of environmental awareness, it's appropriate to know that a favorite family holiday tradition of choosing a real Christmas tree over a fake tree is still the environmentally sound choice.
A benefit to the atmosphere, real trees absorb carbon dioxide and other gases and emits fresh oxygen. This helps prevent the earth warming greenhouse effect.
One acre of Christmas trees produces the daily oxygen requirements for eighteen people. The United States produces approximately one million acres of Christmas trees, which translates into oxygen for eighteen million people every day.READ MORE
