Long Description:
Sprouffske Trees Co. began 48 years ago in 1965 when Fred Sprouffske planted the first Douglas fir seedlings to grow Christmas Trees on his farm. He had previously leased 20 acres to Hoffert Tree Co. and thought it looked promising.

In 1966, he spoke to each of his four children and the Sprouffske Tree Co., a partnership of the 5 families had its beginning with the first trees sold in 1972.

By the year 1978, the partnership became a corporation with wholesale and retail (u-cut) trees being sold along with swags and assorted Christmas items in the “Tree House” (retail sales area).

Fred and Ethel-Faye, and one son Larry and Mary his wife, and son-in-law Bill Roberts are now deceased. In the last few years, one of the original families, daughter Nancy, retired from Sprouffske Trees.

However, you’ll still find familiar faces when you come out to the Sprouffske Tree Farm, since three of the original five families still run the U-cut sales. Jerry and Sandi Sprouffske, Karen and Johnie Creamer, and Jonathan and Shelley Sprouffske (with their three little Wee Elves under 5 years old) are ready to greet you as you kick off your Christmas season at the farm!
