Many changes have taken place since Pines and Spruces grew on the edge of our towns. Here at New Lyme, families still carry on the tradition of cutting their own Christmas tree.

Hello There, Neighbor:
It seems kind of silly for me, a small Ohio Christmas tree grower, to be writing to you about your Christmas tree when you can buy them on every corner as early as October. But, year after year, families from all over Ohio come to New Lyme for their Christmas tree. There must be a mighty good reason.
They're after, the fun and adventure of cutting their own tree. Fresh, fragrant trees. Free hay-rides. OR - they like to select from thousands of finest Pines and Spruces in all sizes up to 12 feet.
But most of all they come because their kids love it.
You see, I'm an old-fashioned Christmas tree grower, used to raising trees of high quality. Most of the trees on the lots today are 5 to 7 foot Scotch Pine. Families come to me for beautiful trees they cannot find elsewhere. I have come to specialize in a large variety of beautiful Pine and Spruce trees in a size range and selection you will find hard to equal anywhere.
As I said previously, 'Kids love Pine Tree Lodge: the horses, the hay ride, going into the field and cutting their own tree fresh and fragrant from the stump, and warming up in our lodge.'
I'm sure you're wondering about the cost. These trees cost no more than any other good tree. Most field cut Pines and Spruces, even in sizes up to 10 feet, sell for about a dollar a foot.
These are the small time grower's touch that add to the memories of a Merry Christmas!
