Enterprise Budget: Christmas Trees

Michael Duffy, Jodi Calvert
Gathering around a Christmas tree has been a family tradition since 1500. Purchasing the family tree has become a holiday event. Nationwide, approximately 35 million trees are sold annually and many Iowans have invested in Christmas tree farms to serve the market for this festive tradition.

Christmas tree plantations ranging in size from a few to more than a thousand acres can be found in almost every region of Iowa. Growing Christmas trees in Iowa can be profitable, and uses soils that are less conducive to conventional crops. Currently Iowa has around 200 Christmas tree farms on 1,500 acres of land.
