When we lived in New Hampshire, we trekked all over for a real tree to cut. Have a super fantastic weekend!

Good morning Gary. When I was a younger man I went to a Christmas Tree Farm to cut a tree. It looks much smaller in the forest than it did when I got it home. A lot of trimming and frustration. Looking back it was a funny lesson learned about measuring twice and cutting once. Enjoy your day.

Gary Frimann, CRS, GRI, SRES when the kids were younger we loved going to the local Christmas Tree Farm, but these days our Christmas Tree comes out of a box.
