The 60-acre farm is one of the largest in Florida, and offers the following varieties: Leyland Cypress, Red Cedar, Arizona Blue Ice Cypress, and Florida Pine. A few of the Virginia Pines are also now available.
Started in the early ’60s by Strickland’s grandfather with just a few trees, popularity soon grew, and more trees were planted every year. Practicing good stewardship, this third generation farm has expanded to more than 10,000 trees.
“We replant a minimum of three times what we sell,” said Cody Strickland.
Live wreaths will be available for purchase as well.
