Welcome One and All!

Come visit our "Mom and Pop" Christmas tree ranch, established in 1947 by longtime local resident Mike Mushet. We are located at the top of the Banner Grade, along State Highway 78, less than a mile east of the historic mining town of Julian, California. As you drive eastbound from town, you'll first pass the high school on your left, and 3/8 mile further, you'll see our sign and entrance just as you start down the hill. Be sure to look for the American flag and U.S. Marine Corps flag both proudly flying!

We offer our specialty white fir trees starting from 3 ft. up to 18 ft. tall.
Trees over 14 ft. can also be available by pre-order. We also handcraft our classic wreaths, swags, arrangements, and garlands right onsite. All our trees are fresh-cut, and the white fir trees are only the tops of mature tall trees. Never is a tree killed in order to produce our Christmas trees. This process is labor intensive, but we carry on the tradition of Mike Mushet, and it always was his wish to keep our forest regenerating for future generations to come. We always do our best to be environmentally correct.

A Little History...

The tree business was first established at the Banner Queen Ranch.
Mike and Patricia Mushet had a location right in the town of Julian until the late 70's, from where they moved to our current location on Hwy. 78. In 1987, Mike's daughter Denise, along with her husband Ed Kelly, joined the family business. Ed continued to work each year with Mike, while Denise raised their four sons. As the boys grew older, Denise began to contribute her own unique, creative works at the lot, making wreaths and other artistic pieces...just as her Dad had done for years. While Mike passed away in 2001, we proudly continue the family tradition, as his spirit is always with us.

Each year we have so many families visit us, some bringing three generations to renew annual ties with ours at our Tree Ranch. Our families welcome you to come start your family tradition with us today!

About Our Family... The Boys Have Grown Up...and our Family Grows too!

2017 has been yet another busy year for the Kelly family. Denise and Ed received their third grandchild, Deacon, for Christmas 2016, but quietly, Denise wished that, for this year, there would be two more grandchildren joining our already-blessed family. Well...that wish is coming true, and the Kelly Family will be welcoming two more grandsons this year! Bruce and Jessica just welcomed their third child, little Grant, just this past August, and big sisters Bailey (4) and Blaire (2) could not be more excited for another playmate! Next up, Philip and Sarah are expecting another boy early December, giving Deacon (1-1/2) a new little brother to play with this winter. Meanwhile, next son Keith has been busy since February working in Salyer, CA as a "hot-shot" firefighter for the U.S Forest Service. He's being kept terribly busy at this season and we will look forward to seeing him home . Youngest son, Mike, just returned from a summer in Maine working as a ceramics teacher for a summer camp. Back home, orders for his unique creations of modern art are keeping him busy now. Denise continues to do great things every day with her position at Sharp Hospice, expanding their memory bear program (you may have spotted her on the news, or heard her voice promoting their program on local radio). Finally, Ed is loving his role as Grandpa (or Chief, as his grandkids have taken to calling him!), keeping busy with projects throughout the family's households. You'll likely see him running the saw mill or greeting longtime friends and customers during Christmas tree season!
We're so blessed to be sharing the season with them all!

We look forward to another wonderful Christmas season, and our entire family hopes to see you & yours come visit us soon at the Julian Christmas Tree Ranch!
