I used to rent space to Christmas tree sellers every year. Why not? It bought people to my property management office, it looked good and they paid me rent too. I used to even record special Christmas music tapes and play them on loud speakers all day long and let the spirit of Christmas do all the rest
THE TREES HAVE SAP
I noticed when I touched the trees, I would get sap on me and some of that sap wouldn't come off either without some scrubbing. But something else happened. I learned that those little pimple like mounds on the tree, its limbs and bark held the sap and the scent. A most pleasant outdoor tree scent too
DO THE HOKEY POKEY
So, I went around piercing all the pimple mounds or sap bubbles (whatever you want to call them) with a pointed probe and released the scents...Consequently the whole area filled with the smell of fresh cut trees and their essence. Since then, every tree I have ever purchased, I have done the same
CITY PEOPLE DON'T KNOW
I have shared this with people and more often than not, they are surprised to hear this. I bet if you had to cut down your own tree, you would discover this phenomena on your own just like I did.
OPTIMIZE THE EXPERIENCE
Get some hot chocolate or apple cider, put on the Christmas classics, get your self a pointed probe and start releasing that beautiful natural scent....Christmas will truly be in the air. Next stop? You heart!
