At the Gatehouse starting on Wednesday, November 29, 2017,
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, 9 am to 4 pm

Buying a real tree in support of forest conservation is a gesture that makes a difference! Drop by the Gatehouse to find a great selection of cultivated and natural Christmas trees.

For a gift that combines (human) health and (nature’s) beauty, consider a pro-rated membership as a gift to those on your Christmas list who could use invigorating treks, on skis or snowshoes or by foot.

Our wares also include deco / info items such as wreaths and boughs, the original phenology calendar 2018 and Christmas cards.

NEW THIS YEAR: cherrywood ornaments from a local wood turner artisan.
