Production of top-quality Christmas-tree planting stock is a highly specialized business subject to rapid changes in techniques and marketing. Most stock is produced in privately owned nurseries in northern states. Some is available from state-owned nurseries. Technical advice on selecting species, planting stock, cultural practices and marketing should be used. High-quality stock may mean the difference between success and failure. Two or more species suitable for the climate and site should be selected, keeping in mind the demand where the trees will be sold.
