Planting Christmas Trees at the Comstock Farm

In the springtime, Farmer Wade feeds pine tree seedlings through the planting machine, pulled by his father on a tractor. These little trees have to grow a long time before they'll be ready for Christmas! (Just how long? Keep reading...)

How do seed planters work? First comes the tractor, which pulls the machine. Then the rolling coulter (the wheel that looks spiky) cuts a line into the ground. A wedge pushes into the line, creating a trench. Then Wade puts the seedling (a baby tree) into a rotating distributor, which plants the trees an equal space apart.

When you take home your Christmas tree this year, just think—your tree was probably planted eight years ago. What year was that? What were you up to when your tree was planted?
