Graton Fire Christmas Tree Farm
Opens 11/29

We are celebrating our 14th year of serving the community in a different way… selling Christmas trees. As many of you know, we purchased the Del Davis Tree Farm on Highway 116, just below Green Valley Road, to be the location of our new fire station. For the 7th year, we will feature pre-cut Noble, Nordmann, and other trees from a certified, sustainably-grown tree farm in Oregon. They are kept in water so they will last significantly longer and be safer in your homes. We highly encourage the pre-cut trees, especially if bought early in the season – they will actually last longer than the choose-n-cuts!

We will be open  Thursday-Sunday from 9am to 5pm after Thanksgiving Day. We invite you to come and enjoy homemade apple cider as you wander through our natural tree farm. Did you sponsor a tree seedling in the past? Come find your tag in the nursery or out in the plantation. Did you know that each acre of Christmas trees generates enough oxygen for 18 people? 

We realize several long-standing tree farms have retired and with them the traditions of family togetherness, holiday smells, and all the “little” things that make a fresh tree and Christmas so special. We look forward to continuing to give our community these special times and our volunteer firefighters enjoy the opportunity of seeing each of you, year after year. Please come and say hello to Heather O’Dell, our tree farm manager, who continues to nurture and maintain the trees on our behalf. With her efforts, our firefighters, and the support of our community, we anticipate another great season! Always remember to breathe deeply... 

OPEN BURNING REMAINS SUSPENDED 

St. Helena – Despite the recent low temperatures and scattered precipitation throughout the region; open burning restrictions remain in effect. 

The Sonoma-Lake-Napa Unit remains well within fire season and is expected to remain as such for the foreseeable future. Fire fuels conditions remain at a level adequate to support the potential for extreme fire behavior. The recent moderation in weather conditions is not adequate to prevent the continued threat to public safety from catastrophic wildfire. Please be mindful that October and November have traditionally been the most destructive months for wildland fire in the Sonoma-Lake-Napa Unit.

 CAL FIRE continually monitors weather conditions and associated fire danger, and will lift the burn suspension when conditions become appropriate for the use of open burning.Remain mindful that one spark is all that is required to start a wildland fire. 

CAL FIRE wants you to follow these tips to prevent wildfire. 

  1. Cease use of outdoor power equipment by 10 a.m., not during the heat of the day, or when the wind is blowing.
     
  2. Mowers are designed to mow lawns, not dry vegetation. 

  3. Use a weed trimmer with a string line to cut down dry weeds and grass. 
  4. Make sure ashes from wood stoves are “dead out” before dumping.
