Q: I've never been to a Christmas tree farm. Can you tell me what to expect?
Absolutely. You can expect to have a wonderful time at Days of Creation. Our family is available to guide you as you go.
Our farm is neat and clean and, in the words of many of our guests, "very beautiful. " The trees are planted in rows and the field is fairly flat, so walking is easy.
When you arrive at Days of Creation, you will park near the old tobacco barn. From there, you can take the short walk to the field, or, on Saturdays, you can ride the hayride, if weather permits.
We provide saws and gloves for your use in cutting your tree. Each tree is tagged with its height and price. If you need help, or have questions, we will have workers stationed near the Christmas tree field. More than likely, those workers will be one of our six children.
After you've cut your tree, you can take it to one of the designated pick-up stations and we'll take it to the barn for you. However, you may want to carry it to the barn yourself. Our kids -even when they were very small- always wanted to help carry the tree.
Our motto is "We're in the family business; Come make a memory!" Enjoy your time at Days of Creation.
Q: What varieties of trees do you have?
We grow a total of eight varieties of trees. Three of them are types of Leyland Cypress (Leighton Green, Murray X, and Naylor Blue). We also have Eastern Red Cedar, Clemson Greenspire, Carolina Sapphire, and Blue Ice. Pictures and descriptions of each variety can be found on our Tree Varieties page. And for the 2018 season we will have some Fraser Fir trees available at our farm!
Q: Do you have large trees?
Yes, many of our Leighton Green and Murray X Leyland Cypress, as well as some Red Cedars, are above ten feet tall. Our tallest trees are about 11 feet. We do have some trees up to 25 feet, but they are limited so please call ahead.
Q: Do you have Christmas wreaths? If so, how much are they?
Yes, we hand-make wreaths from fresh-cut material off of our trees. Prices start at $15 for a 12" non-decorated wreath. Larger sizes are also available. Please call 912-256-1167 and ask for Sheryl to get more details. We do accept advanced orders for pick-up, but we also invite you to watch the wreath-making process when you visit.
Q: Are your trees pre-cut?
Yes and no. Our primary options are trees that are standing in the field until you are ready for them. They are fresher that way. We do provide hand saws and gloves to cut down the trees, and we can help you out if you're having trouble. We also have Fraser firs available, which are pre-cut and standing in water to keep them fresh.
Q: Do you have any Fraser firs or spruce trees?
We will have Fraser firs ranging from 6 ft. to 11 ft for the 2018 season. They will be pre-cut and standing in water in order to remain fresh for you, since those varieties can't be grown this far south. We are expecting them to be available the week of Thanksgiving! We hope to see you this season.
Q: How do I get to your farm?
Our farm is easy to find. We are located on US Hwy 84 about 2 miles from the Jesup city limits (2.75 miles from Burger King). Our address is 3997 Waycross Highway, Jesup, GA. Check our Directions page for more information.
Q: How long will the trees last after being cut?
Many factors can affect how long a tree lasts, including the variety of tree and where it's placed. Keeping the tree watered is the most critical factor. Our best recommendation is to make a fresh cut, about 1/2 inch off the trunk, when you’re ready to put your tree in its stand. Then keep it hydrated! It will drink a lot of water the first 7 to 10 days.
Q: Do you sell other Christmas items?
For the 2018 season we will not have a store. Check again for next year!
Q: Do you sell food?
No, we don't sell food. However, you are welcome to bring your own food and use our picnic tables.
Q: Can I bring my dog?
Yes, you may bring your dog, if you keep the dog on a leash and clean up behind it.
