We will be in town for the Christmas parade in Rehoboth and got the brainstorm maybe we should go Christmas tree hunting in De. I checked out the farms and to my dismay none have Balsam fir which is the only tree that says Christmas to me.

Does anyone recall (or know) if they have seen Balsam Fir trees. I f so where? Somehow I don't envision a trip to LI to get my tree once we move next year.

I just told my DH that we can't move because they don't have BF Christmas Trees in De. He laughed, told me there is always an artificial one. I told him there is always artificail dinner !!!

That's a TALL order, since Delaware's soil and low altitude are not desirable for growing balsams. Delaware's general altitude is below 50 feet of elevation.

Claymont Lions club had them for sale last year. I guess they had them delivered from elsewhere. Claymont is in New Castle County. Here's a link from last year's advertisement.


Claymont Lions, Marsh and Naamans roads, Brandywine Hundred. 475-8520. Opens Saturday. Noon-8 p.m. Mon.-Fri., 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Sat. and Sun., except in blizzard conditions, from Saturday until all trees sell. Douglas and Fraser firs and balsams. 5-9 feet, $18-$65; also some wreaths, $20.

And, here's a link for Delaware Christmas Trees: http://www.delawarechristmastreegrow..._varieties.php

(don't let Balsam Acres fool you. That's their name, they grow no balsam trees)
