Sustainable Harvest Practices

At Alpine Farms we earn our living just as a farmer would, by harvesting plant material from the land, so sustainable harvesting practices are very important to us. We appreciate and respect the bounty of the earth. The jobs we generate help sustain our economy, and our products enable repeated traditions that build healthy and happy families.

Wreath Bough Harvest:

  • Boughs are harvested by “tipping”, or pruning mature trees, no trees are cut down in the harvesting process.
  • The pruning process improves overall forest health by encouraging further growth, and increasing airflow and sun light access.
  • Our Noble fir boughs are harvested high in the Cascade Mountains near the foothills of Mount Rainier. We also harvest Noble boughs from overgrown Christmas tree plantations once the snow load prevents mountain access.
  • The other bough materials are harvested throughout Washington, Oregon and Idaho in the same sustainable manor.
