Christmas Tree Field Tour

Lane County

Monday, September 18, 2017 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Kirk Stroda is always trying new techniques and new ideas as he grows Christmas trees. Kirk will share his enthusiasm in growing trees by discussing some of the topics:

  1. Nordmann/Turkish fir top work- Kirk Stroda and Chal Landgren are working on a small pictorial trial investigating what we think will be the best strategies to trim tops. We will have before and after photos of specific trees. Come and see if the trees agreed with our guesses!
  2. Culturing noble fir to achieve a narrow and layered appearance
  3. Table top tree culturing of noble fir.
  4. Soil treatments for improved water retention and sod waterways.
