Boughs and brush are synonymous terms for the purposes of this price list. Boughs are cut from trees that are no longer viable as Christmas trees or are designated for boughs. There is a variety of bough lengths harvested from a given tree. Bundles normally contain this random variety of lengths. Special orders for bundles containing only specified lengths will be priced higher accordingly.
These wholesale bough prices are for orders of one half ton or more or smaller order of boughs accompanying orders of 25 trees or more. Two 25 # bundles may be substituted for one 50 # bundle at additional cost. Boughs that the seller cuts are tied into bundles with string.
Buyers cutting boughs pay the per ton price. Special arrangements must be made for measuring the quantity of boughs cut by the Buyer. By specific agreement, the seller may cut trees with boughs and place the boughs in one or more piles for the buyer to remove. In this event marketable tops may be removed by the seller.
It is highly recommended that the buyer visit the Christmas tree farm in late Summer or early Fall to view the trees from which the boughs will be cut. There is such a variety of uses of boughs having different desirable characteristics that it is very useful to see exactly what the buyer needs. Boughs can be used as cemetery decorations, outdoor public building decorations, garlands, swags, wreaths, etc. Each of these require different types, density, length, specie, etc.
Boughs are typically cut in late October to mid-November. It is important to have multiple frosts to "set" the needles before the boughs are harvested from the tree. Some years that happens later in the season which compresses the time to complete the harvest. Balsam Fir and Fraser Fir are the most commonly purchased boughs. Colorado Blue Spruce boughs are typically used in professional Christmas arrangements where the blue color is very desirable. The Red, White, and Norway Spruce boughs are often used in decorations where large areas are being covered and a variety of shades of green are desired for effect. White Pine is frequently used as a highlight in combination with other species. The Colorado Blue Spruce boughs will be a mixture of bluish green to very blue.
