Boskydel Bosky: Having trees or shrubs; slang for tipsy
Where else but your favorite vineyard to select and take home your very own Doug fir Christmas tree for the holiday season? Our small, "eclectic" operation was featured in an article in the Detroit Free Press a few years ago. Hours are 1-5 seven days a week. We're not actively planting new trees, but there are still a few in various sizes available.
Douglas Fir Facts
The Douglas-fir has been the major Christmas tree species used in the Pacific Northwest since the 1920s The trees can live for a thousand years, largely due to a very thick bark that allows them to survive moderate fires.
