CHRISTMAS 2013 Our 2013 season begins the day after Thanksgiving (Friday, November 28). and runs through Tuesday, December 24. As always, we will have an excellent selection of fresh cut Pennsylvania grown trees. Or if you prefer, you are welcome to cut your own tree. Finally, we have one of our best selection of balled and burlap trees in years. We also have wreaths, swags, greens, grave blankets and evergreen roping.
IF YOU NEED MORE INFORMATION PLEASE CALL 610 715-4640 or 610 952-3060.
2013 UPDATE The weather this year has been especially challenging. While the plentiful rains of Spring have allowed for adequate tree growth, the excess of rain has caused its own problems. We have experienced a dramatic increase in Rhabdocline Needlecast Disease on many of our Douglas Firs, which causes premature shedding of the interior needles on the trees. Even under ideal conditions, Douglas Firs are difficult to grow in this area, as they prefer higher elevations and well drained soils to thrive. However, because Douglas Firs are still one of the most popular Christmas trees, we are bringing in additional premium Douglas Firs from our suppliers in Lehigh and Schuylkill Counties, including some 10'-12' trees.
We also hope many of you will get a chance to meet our dog, Toby. He is young and full of energy (sometimes too much energy!!), so he will be outside for limited periods of time. He is an Australian Cattle dog and enjoys herding up people. Toby is joined by his best friend, Huxley, James' friendly 1 1/2 year old American Pit Bull Terrier. They love meeting new people and welcoming them to the farm.

YES- WE CAN DRILL TREES FOR STAND-STRAIGHT AND TIM MITCHELL TREE STANDS.
CHRISTMAS TREES AND GREENERY
Christmas season has always been special at Corkum's. It is the time of the year that we welcome the most people to our farm and while it is a lot of hard work, the joy of seeing old friends and happy young children makes it all worth while. Our approach is very low key. We do not offer all the "bells and whistles" that many other Christmas Tree farms do, but we hope that our more laid back style also can be appreciated. We will welcome you, offer you a complimentary glass of warm cider, try to keep the winter mud down to a minimum while offering quality trees and Christmas greenery at fair prices. All of our workers are our own family members or friends who enjoy helping out during the season each year. We look forward to seeing you this season and hope that you will become an annual visitor.
