Redstart’s Markus Bradley has been a lifelong Christmas tree farmer, planting and harvesting thousands of trees each year.
Based on this experience, Markus is more than happy to work with you to help you manage an existing plantation or to establish a new plantation. He is knowledgeable about the soil and nutrient requirements of Christmas trees, the challenges associated with fungal pathogens and insect pests, and the best management practices to ensure a healthy and productive plantation. He can help you learn about sourcing the best planting stock, fertilizing, harvesting, and even marketing.
Christmas trees can be a great way to utilize open land, and Markus is always glad to help a new farmer get started or an established one do better.
