Customers will not be able to buy Christmas trees from Dzen Tree Farm in South Windsor this year, but the larger farm, Dzen's Christmas Trees, located nearby, will be opening on Nov. 28.
Dzen Tree Farm announced on its Facebook page that they will not be able to open for the season.
The competing tree farms on Barber Hill Road are owned by cousins within the Dzen family.
One cousin sold land to developers to build a group of homes on the property last year. The farm's owners said they worked a year to try and work out a plan for access to the tree farm, but to no avail.
Developer Rob Mannarino told NBC Connecticut the bank won't let him give Dzen's Tree Farm an easement and that the town and homeowners don't want all the traffic through the neighborhood.
The owners are referring customers to the Connecticut Christmas Growers Association website to find other farms and hope to be able to open for the 2015 Christmas season.
Dzen's Christmas Trees, which is located on the east side of Barber Hill Road, will be ready for business the day after Thanksgiving.
"We have over 100 acres of Christmas trees to choose from, which means over 100,000 Christmas trees, said Joe Dzen, owner of Dzen's Christmas Trees.
