The Kelly Family

Hi Christmas Tree Ranch Family!

This morning (12/9/20) our own Philip Kelly was interviewed by 103.7 KSON’s morning talk show host John and Tammy from John and Tammy in the morning talking about our Julian Christmas Tree Ranch!! If you didn’t get a chance to catch it live, here is the recording!


 We offer our specialty white fir trees starting from 3 ft up to 30 ft tall.

Trees over 10 ft are available, but must be pre-ordered.

We also handcraft our classic wreaths, swags, arrangements.

Handmade garland and wreaths size large and over “48in” must be pre ordered.

All of 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.

Serving all our great friends and families in San Diego County, Imperial County, and all the Southland!

A quick update on our family…


Despite the craziness 2020 has brought to the world, our family is still pushing forward!  As always, we are striving to get ahead in the daily grind so we can commit more time to the Christmas Tree Ranch during the holidays. Christmas tree life is the only kind we’ve ever known and we love taking time during this season to continue our 73 year family tradition!

Oldest son Bruce and wife Jessica are enjoying their four beautiful children Bailey(7), Blaire(5), Grant(3), and welcomed newest son Jedd last November.  The family recently moved to Texas in Spring due to a transfer in work for Bruce, although we all miss their proximity, we’re all taking turns planning visits to see them.   Bruce is still working as a railroad traffic controller but on his off time they take any opportunity to go camping and explore the outdoors with their kiddos.

Second son Philip and wife Sarah are busy with their trio of children Deacon (4), Emmett (3) and Marlene (1) and are enjoying life in the mountains living locally in Julian.  Philip works as a grading contractor in Julian year round.

Our next son Keith spent the year furthering his career as a hot shot squad leader for the Six Rivers National Forest. Keith married his sweet bride Alyssa early January in Guaymas, Mexico. They recently planted roots in Eureka, California which they look forward to relaxing in their new home this winter after a crazy fire season!

Youngest son Mike went on a life changing adventure driving across the country in May.  He restored his Papa Mike’s van and drove it from San Diego, California to Portland, Maine!  He has been working on the East Coast all summer and plans to make his way back to California by the end of the year.

Ed and Denise are busy being Chief and Mamaw to their 7 grandchildren working hard throughout the year to take some time to slow things down and enjoy their customers during the tree season.
