A Fresh-Cut Christmas

The Christmas season begins the moment a tree enters your home. Selecting and trimming your tree is a timeless ritual, which we greatly value at Thompson + Hanson; that is why we continue our tradition of selling fresh cut Fraser firs in our nurseries.

We select our premium Fraser firs from a Christmas tree farm in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. For generations, the Cartner family has grown and lightly shaped these lovely trees, which are known for their natural elegance, rich color, and unmistakable fragrance. During our visits- a Christmas treat in itself- we walk the fields with David Cartner, inspecting the trees that are destined for your home. Each tree is handled with great care from North Carolina to its new stand, where a fresh cut and constant watering preserves its fullness and longevity.

The real beauty of these trees is the atmosphere they inspire, transforming your home  and our nursery into a festive destination and the centerpiece of the season. We appreciate your trust in our Christmas cargo and hope you are anticipating this holiday’s sleigh-full of trees as much as we are.
