Mathisen Tree Farms began in the late 1970's with the plantings that were mostly Scotch Pine. Colorado Spruce, Balsam and Douglas Fir were also grown in limited quantities.
Early in the 90's a shift of production occurred with more emphasis placed upon growing True Firs. Fraser Fir production rapidly increased from annual plantings of around 10,000 to nearly 50,000.
Our intrigue with the cultural production of Fraser Fir led us to experiment with other True Firs. Now we are growing seven True Fir varieties: Fraser Fir, Balsam Fir, Canaan Fir, Concolor Fir, Corkbark Fir, Korean Fir and Nikko Fir. It is our intent to grow a Christmas Tree that is the highest quality possible and gives the homeowner positive experience with a fresh cut conifer.
Mathisen Tree Farms also grows conifers for the nursery industry. We offer dug trees in pots or handballs in 2'/3' and 3'/4'. Trees taller than 4' are machine dug with a mechanical spade and placed in a wire basket with burlap (B&B). We have the ability to dig a tree as tall as 12-feet.
Tom personally tags all the B&B trees himself. Rob tags all the potted and handball stock. We grow nursery trees in the following species: Colorado Spruce, Serbian Spruce, Black Hills Spruce, Norway Spruce, Hemlock, Arborvitae, Austrian Pine, Scotch Pine, White Pine, Balsam Fir, Concolor Fir, Corkbark Fir, Canaan Fir, Fraser Fir, Douglas Fir, Nikko Fir and Korean Fir.
We grade nursery stock as either Regular Grade (our biggest production) or as Specimen Grade. Specimen Grade trees are the "cream of the crop" in our B&B production. We can also quote Commercial or Park Grade upon request.
