About


Dean Schnoor

Whispering Pines was started in January 1980 by Dean and Joyce (Penton) Schnoor after Dean retired from the U.S. Army. They attended the organizational meeting of the Florida Christmas Tree Association held at the Forestry School, University of Florida and planted their first Christmas trees in January.

After growing Christmas trees for 31 years, Dean and Joyce retired. Dean passed away January 8th, 2013 from complications from Agent Orange / Parkinson Disease.  Mike Kelly and family plan to continue the Family Tradition of providing trees to our customers for generations to come.
