About Pea Ridge Tree Farm
Pea Ridge Forest is a family-owned and operated tree farm. Growing quality trees has always been our mission, whether it be Christmas trees for our choose and cut operation or balled and burlapped trees for our wholesale nursery. Pride in our work has been the cornerstone of our business. As such, Pea Ridge Forest has remained a source of quality trees since 1972.
Nestled in the hills along the Missouri River in eastern Missouri, Pea Ridge Forest started as a Christmas tree farm when Myron Gwinner, the previous owner, planted the first trees in 1955. Naive and overly optimistic about what it takes to produce quality trees, LeRoy and Mary Rood bought the farm, literally, in 1972 and subsequently fell in love with the place. LeRoy and Mary instilled their love for the land and their work in their sons, Mike and Scott.
