It's Christmas tree season

The past few Christmas seasons we have had the opportunity to supply the lighted Christmas tree at Friends University in Wichita Kansas. The Concolor fir that we supplied again this year came from the Cimmaron NM area. If you have had the opportunity to visit Philmont Scout ranch as a scout or a leader, you know the area. We loaded the 25' tree this morning on our flatbed truck, delivered, set up and lit the tree today. Check back and I'll post a photo of the tree at night illuminated.
The photo added at the top of the page is another Concolor fir that we delivered to Southwestern College in Winfield Kansas. I need to make a road trip some evening and get some night shots of the trees, check back.


  1. Concolors are beautiful trees! Does Johnsons carry Fraser or Noble Firs? My family has a Christmas tree farm in Western NC, and the last two years (moved to KS) have been the first where I have not been harvesting, baling trees, loading dropdecks, making wreaths and running retail lots this time of year. Let me know if Johnsons would be interested in North Carolina Fraser Firs in 2010.

  2. We do carry Fraser and Noble fir trees. Have your family get with us after Christmas and we can talk. They really grow good trees in NC. I have been unloading, displaying, selling, flocking (not anymore) trees for most of my 54 years, I would miss it.
