Redrock Farm in Chelsea, Vermont specializes in growing fragrant balsam firs and other evergreens from seed in our greenhouse and on an environmentally friendly Christmas tree plantation. We grow our seedlings for use as favors for weddings and other events, as well as planting stock for ourselves and others. Our Christmas trees go to not only local families as choose and cut , but all over the country by internet order and FedEx Home Delivery. 2013 IS THE 23ND YEAR THAT WE WILL HAVE BEEN SENDING CHRISTMAS TREES, WREATHS, DECORATIONS, AND ACCESSORIES TO EVERY STATE. YOU WILL NOT FIND ANYONE WITH MORE EXPERIENCE SHIPPING TREES THAN US!
Our greenhouse nursery and transplant beds contain thousands of “baby” trees for future use as Christmas trees, reforestation, landscaping, weddings, business openings, and hundreds of other green uses.
Each spring in late April and early May, Rich and Steph plant several thousand seedlings out in fields for future use as Christmas trees; at least one for every one harvested the year before.
Each June we take a crop of yearling plugs out of the greenhouse and start a new crop of around 100,000 trees from seed.
Since 1990, the Rockwood family has specialized helping families across the US enjoy the tradition of a freshly cut real tree and balsam fir wreath by shipping them by FEDEX to customer doorsteps across the USA.
Rich and Steph, with help from Dad Walt, son Kabray and family, and various other family members, plant, fertilize, shear, and do all the other care for every tree in the fields. Each tree gets personal attention several times a year, and each is shaped to its own personality
Redrock Farm trees and wreaths annually win Blue ribbons at the Vermont Farm Show and the Tunbridge World’s Fair, and have been the Vermont State Champion at the Eastern States Exposition (Big E) for seven consecutive years.
We carefully put trees up to 9 feet tall in a wax-lined carton and time their shipment to arrive when specified by the customer.
We pride ourselves in shipping ONLY premium trees that are freshly cut.
