Summer Work on Christmas Trees

Mid summer, and we are very busy here at Glaisters Farm getting Christmas trees ready for the Festive Season.   Despite the unseasonally bad weather our guys are out every day working on the Christmas trees.   Just now we are making sure that every tree has a straight leader, the branch where the fairy goes.   If the leader is growing squint then we put a cane on the tree to pull the leader straight – who would like a Christmas tree with a crooked leader.
Xmas trees are not enjoying all the rain that we are getting and are very slow to grow this year – the growth rate must be at least 2 – 3 weeks behind normal.
One good day yesterday – hopefully we might get a few more of those!!
