At an island
we grow Christmas Trees. Since 1990 we have grown and sold Christmas
Trees by the riverside of Borgå river or directly from the farm.
As the Chistmas Tree plantation is on an island, the trees are
transported ashore by boat or by snow-scooter, depending on the
state of the ice.
It takes about
8-12 years for one Christmas Tree to grow to the correct size.
In order to get uniform and thick Christmas trees they are cut
twice a year. Every year new trees are also planted, and the saplings
are then two years old.
The weed control
is being taken care of by the sheep!
