Sahtlam Tree Farm is owned by Bob Russell. “After receiving a forestry education in the mid ‘60s, I became involved with Christmas tree farming part-time on Salt Spring Island in a family enterprise. In 1974, I purchased the 40 acre Sahtlam property. Although stump cultures (the science of growing one or more trees off a root stock) are practised here, I generally interplant seedlings close to the recently harvested trees. Mulching and culturing practises, plus vegetation management, are necessary for quality tree production. There are now some 40,000 planted and naturally seeded Christmas trees on the property. Douglas fir and Grand fir make up 90% of the annual harvest. Noble fir accounts for the balance. Douglas is the most popular tree in the retail lots; however, the Grands, known for their fragrance, are the favourites at choose-and-cut farms.”
