Alexandre Castella has been producing Christmas trees for more than 25 years. A few years ago, he was joined by his sons in the family business based in Sommentiers in the canton of Fribourg. On their 35 hectares, divided between the cantons of Fribourg and Vaud, they cultivate several species of firs, including the classic Nordmann and the Pungens blue fir. The management of the cultivation of 350'000 fir trees occupies the company full time all year round. It will take between 5 and 12 years in the nursery for a tree before it can celebrate the Holidays in a family.
