Jutek Tour

Jay and Christie Weir are inviting all NH-VT Christmas Tree Association members to a very special presentation at Weir Tree Farms in Colebrook, NH, on Wednesday, August 7th from 3pm to 5pm.
We have the privilege to host Jorgen Kaehlershoj from the Jutek Company based in Denmark. Jorgen will be traveling all over the United States from July to September and we are very pleased to be on of his many stops! Jutek is a company that specializes in the development and production of special tractors. Most of them are used for the maintenance of Christmas trees, but they also build tractors for spray tests, nurseries, and other special crops. In addition to their wide range of machinery they have comprehensive experience in the development and manufacturing of customized solutions. The demonstrations that are being done at our farm will only focus on tractors and tools that are made specifically for US Christmas tree production. You do not have to be a member of the association to attend so if you wish to bring others along please feel free. There is no need to RSVP, but if we could get an idea on the approximate amount of people it would be helpful with setting up the logistics of the demonstrations. Click here for the official flyer and invitation from Jutek and their website is www.jutek.us We hope that many of you can join us!
