Colored Christmas Trees (and New Colors) Back for 2020 at Rome Farm
The Rome Christmas tree farm that first brought colored Christmas trees to the area is back for 2020 - and they've got new colors.
Jay Henderberg, owner of Henderberg's Tree Farm, says his farm's colored Christmas trees will be back for 2020. That's good news for families ready to get to celebrating the holidays.
Henderberg's Tree Farm has fresh cut and u-cut trees, but what really sets them apart are their multi-colored trees - in colors like purple, pink, and turquoise. This year, Jay says they've ordered new colors: orange and black. He says the pandemic has put a bit of a delay on the supplies used to color the trees, but he's optimistic the new colors will be delivered in time for opening day.
Each colored tree is coated with a non-toxic food grade colorant.
Jay says the farm will be following all the CDC recommendations regarding mask-wearing and social distancing. "Our building is a little small, because this is just a seasonal business, so we might have to keep count of how many people are in there." Jay says they're fortunate, since most of the tree selection and cutting takes place outdoors.
