Mockingbird Hill Christmas Tree Farm was established in 1970 by Les & May Simmons. The Family cleared the land which is now the tree Farm and main facilities for the Tree and Lawn care aspects of the business. With more land cleared it was Les & May's dream to plant Christmas trees.
Les's first comment "We will plant trees and if they look good as they get older we can sell them at Christmas time, if not they will look pretty when it snows". The trees were getting close to a saleable size about 1980. The Family decided to open the next year but we had no name to advertise. Although many names were discussed Mockingbird Hill was what they picked. Our early pruning practices we were shearing to hard and it made a very dense canopy in the trees. This proved to be perfect nesting grounds for Mockingbirds. We still have many Mockingbirds and we are located on top of a Hill. Les said "Mockingbirds will always land on the top or pinnacle of a tree, structure. Tom as a tree climber always climbs to the top of the trees he is working on" The name just fit with the location and the Family. The Tree farm first opened to the public as a cut your own operation in 1982. Les and May's son Tom began working with a Tree Service summers in 1973. He quickly fell in love with climbing trees. He worked for nine different tree firms before going on his own, and holds two degrees in Arboriculture and Urban Forestry from the University of Massachusetts. The Lawn Care division was started by Tom's wife Margot Simmons in 1991, who worked with Chemlawn for eight years becoming the specialist every one wanted . The Company has grown because of these people and the employees that have worked very hard to promote professionalism . It is our goal to provide the best plant health care to our customers each and every day.
