In 1982, Randy and Linda Motley planted 2,000 Christmas trees as the beginning of Motley's Tree Farm. Randy's parents, Ralph and Darlene, helped them with the planting, and by 1986, the Motley's were operating three farms in Arkansas: Tar Camp Christmas tree farm in Redfield, Willow Springs Christmas tree farm in Little Rock, and a wholesale Christmas tree farm in Hensley. They had nearly 30,000 trees in production.
But by 1997, the Motley's had learned that it was a lot more fun to sell Christmas trees directly to the families that will be taking them home. They left the wholesale market, and began inviting the public to come out to the farm in Little Rock to choose and cut their very own Christmas trees.
Randy notes that they have been providing beautiful, locally grown Christmas trees to Central Arkansas families for approximately three decades now. "I've Some of our strapping employees help a guest tie down their new Christmas tree to their car at Motley's Tree Farm in Little Rock near Pine Bluff, Arkansaswatched families come year after year, and seen their children grow up," he said. "And now, those kids are bringing their children to enjoy the same family tradition."
