It started here – Molalla, OR – around 60 years ago when the idea for growing Christmas trees as a farm crop first emerged. Up until then, forests gave up their best looking of the wild trees for the holiday custom. A core group of growers decided to try growing Douglas firs on their farms, and the idea blossomed into an industry. Dennis Kyllo grew up on one of these farms. In the mid 1980’s Ed Hallett teamed up with Dennis and together formed the company Oregon Evergreen, Inc. We ship Douglas, Noble, Grand and Nordman fir Christmas trees from 3 ft to 20 ft in height. Together we are responsible for satisfying our customers – which are now all over the globe.
For our Fundraiser accounts we offer additional services:
- Christmas tree display kits
- Special aids for how to use simple small business principles to plan successful ventures year-to-year.
Willamette Evergreen, Inc.
Started in 1985 packaging forest grown evergreen boughs and producing a full line of craft products that consumers enjoy using to decorate their home in December – wreaths, garlands, table centerpieces, etc. Wholesale florists nationwide believe wreaths made from Oregon’s Noble fir boughs are THE BEST. Sorry Maine, North Caroline and Wisconsin, but it’s true! Placing a wreath on the front door is one of our most ancient and enduring customs. We use boughs from Noble firs growing on the Cascade Mountains, our pruning of those trees provides the raw material for our program and stimulates the forest trees to grown clean and vertical in the spring.
Packaging – Racks – Bins – boxes – bundles – we cover them all!
Oregon Green Moss
We have branched into packaging another forest crop – Oregon Green Moss, aka Oregon Sphagnum Moss. Florists and greenhouse nurseries have learned that an inexpensive way to keep the soil for their plants cool and moist, is to make good use of the properties of our Green Moss. They hold water in their tissues far longer than soil itself.
