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.

is in transition. Since 1984 we have been a Christmas tree farm company. This year, with our inventory plus agricultural labor drastically declining, we have decided to transition out of most Oregon-grown Christmas trees. Please go to Christmas Trees for details. We will continue our wreath making at Willamette Evergreen.

Oregon Green Moss and Florida Spanish Moss. . .
At Willamette Evergreen we have branched into packaging another crop – Oregon moss growing in our Oregon rainforests and Spanish moss that grows in Florida’s stands of Oak and Cypress trees. 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 plants known as nature’s sponge – varieties of moss. They hold water in their tissues far longer than soil itself.
