Did you know that more than 50% of people in the West display artificial trees, while just 26% buy a live one.
We’re among the 26%. We spent the day after Thanksgiving participating in my favorite family tradition, searching for the tree that would grace our home for the next month…and we found a BEAUT! (we’ve had our fair share of Charlie Brown trees.)
We each took a turn sawing it down…
This year our two oldest boys were finally strong enough to carry the tree out of the forest themselves. Which seems bizarre to me because I feel like it was just yesterday that my hubs and I were the Sherpas with the tree and the children on our backs.
Quick Fact: “Oregon harvests about 7 million Christmas trees per year, more than double the nation’s number-two producer (North Carolina).”
If you’re thinking about trading over to the 26% here’s the information you’ll need to get started.
PS Here’s our tree farm experience in 2010.
