Spruce sell will benefit Haywood schools

Written by 

TCA Tree Farm in Ironduff is selling “dig your own” 4-foot Norway spruce trees Sept. 25 and Oct. 2 as a benefit for the Haywood County Schools Foundation.

The trees are immune to the woolly adelgid that attacks hemlocks, and they grow over one foot a year.

Proceeds will be used for the foundation’s “Save a Teacher” fund, a project to use locally raised money to provide additional teachers for the Haywood school system.

The trees are $20 and can be dug up from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days. Buyers need to bring their own shovels and a five-gallon bucket for each tree. TCA Farms is located at 101 Flat Rock Gap Road in Waynesville. To get there, travel down N.C. 209 toward I-40, and turn left across from the Haywood Café Truck Stop onto Ironduff Road. Go .3 miles and cross a small bridge and turn left onto McElroy Cove Road. Go .7 miles down McElroy Cove Road and turn left onto Noland Gap Road. Travel on Noland Gap until you see signs. 828.456.2400 or 828.507.6432.
