Douglas-fir trees can live for a thousand years, largely due to a very thick bark that allows them to survive moderate fires. Thus many ancient old-growth forests contain large Douglas-fir that represent the legacy of fires that occurred many centuries ago.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the questions we hear the most often.

Should I bring my own chain saw to cut down my award winning tree? I like lots of horse power!

Not necessary. We have plenty of saws and for safety reasons, we do not allow customers to operate any power equipment such as chain saws.

Where are the big trees?

A little sense of adventure is needed for this search.  The entire farm is always open for searching.  Every tree is available and there is no particular area where there is an abundance of a certain type or size tree.

Will I need to wear boots and be prepared to trudge through the snow?

The farm is entirely outdoors. Depending on the weather the parking lots can even be wet. Precut trees are a way to avoid walking through the farm. If you plan on venturing out to cut down your own tree you should be prepared to do a lot of walking. Maple Row Tree Farm has many acres of trees for you to look through!

 

How long does it take to grow a tree?

A tree takes about four years from a seed to the time it is large enough to be put into the field. After this it will take on average about a foot a year. Different varieties will grow slower or faster than others.

What kind of tree will keep its needles the longest?

Firs and Pines will hold their needles longer after being cut than a spruce will. It is important however to remember that each tree is in itself individual, and for this reason a specific tree may not hold its needles. Maple Row Farm guarantees all trees in that if it does lose a large number of needles prior to Christmas by returning the tree we will provide another free of charge or a certificate for a tree the following year.

 

How many locations are there? How do you tell one from the other - I am meeting my friends here and will need to drive around until I find them?

Take a look at our Maps section.

Where can we park - there will be a group of us?

Tailgating has become increasing popular and with this so have people headed to the farm in groups. To accommodate this we ask that groups arrive together, as we park cars in the order they arrive. We also ask that you do not “reserve” space beyond your parking space, there are no tents in the parking area and visitors are asked to purchase a tree (not just party)! Thanks.

How can I keep our tree fresh?

Take a look at our tree caring tips.

Is there any place nearby for lunch?

Maple Row Tree Farm is located in rural Easton. There are no restaurants in town. There are, however, numerous restaurants in nearby Monroe, to the East, and Fairfield, to the West. Here are a few:

-Blue Bird Inn, Route 58, Easton (203) 452-0697
-Roberto’s, Main Street Monroe, (203) 268-5723
-Carl Anthony’s, Main Street, Monroe, (203)261-2652
-Cinzano’s, Route 58, Fairfield, (203) 367-1199
-Bear and Grill, Route 58, Fairfield, (203) 333-1522
-Barcelona, Route 58, Fairfield, (203) 255-0800

What tree gives off the best smell?

Each tree type does smell and has its own unique smell. The easiest way to tell what a tree smells like is to break a needle or the end of a branch. This will let out aroma. Similarly in the home cutting a few branches every day will cause the tree to be more fragrant.

Can someone help us tie the tree on the car?

We try to provide our customers with the highest level of customer service. Unfortunately during our busier weekends we are unable to assist in tying on trees to cars. We do however provide twine for this. During the week we try our best to assist. Your understanding is appreciated.

Can I bring my dog?

We do allow dogs. In order to be respectful to all other tree hunters, we do require that your dog be on a leash at all times when on the farm.

I have a shovel. Where can I go to dig up my Christmas tree?

Believe it or not we do not allow nor do we dig out any trees. It is said that there is as much of a tree underground as there is above. Therefore, to dig out a six-foot tree not grown to be dug would require a root ball weighing hundreds of pounds.  If it must be a dug tree, our partner nursery Maple Row Growers may be able to help.
