Picking the perfect tree has never been easier with Swanson's renowned "Spin and Pick" system – each tree is hand selected for its shape and color, suspended off the ground indoors, and ready for a spin by the pickiest purveyor. No more poring over an unorganized pile of trees in the rain. We'd like to think Clark would park the station wagon and cry if he saw this.
Tree shopping at Swansons during the holidays isn't an errand – it's a family-friendly destination. Our entire nursery is transformed into a winter wonderland complete with a model train village, greenhouses brimming with holiday décor and unique gift ideas, a cafe perfect for brunch or cocoa with the kids, and frequent visits by Santa and his reindeer. We aim to put a smile on any grinch this time of year.
What comes along with a multi-generational family business is a love for what you do, and for the Burton family that is growing beautiful trees – sustainably. Every year they each plant over 50,000 new trees and in every seedling is the hope that it will someday be the centerpiece of a Christmas morning. After 65 years, 4 family members, over 800,000 acres, and a few trees in the White House – they've raised a good story.
