We got our Christmas tree on Friday. Some would say that’s late, but I would say it’s right on time.
We did our own cutting and now that Christmas is only a week away, I am confident this tree will last for a good long time. We usually have it up for about a month, so the later the better.
We didn’t visit the same Christmas tree farm as last year. While that was a very nice tree farm, I thought that something new was in order. So, I did a little search and found another farm about an hour away. That’s not too far when an adventure like this gets you out of the house. The sun was shining too, so things couldn’t be better. Crisp, 31 degrees and not a cloud in the sky.
The name of the place was “Lebanon Christmas Tree Farm.” You can see from the pictures that it’s a very well taken care of tree farm. It’s good level land, which makes the trek through the trees a bit easier. While it’s not the largest tree farm we’ve ever been to, it certainly had the most groomed trees we’ve ever seen. I am still thinking about that huge tree farm over in New York that we went to in 2006. We picked out and cut down a monster of a Blue Spruce. Let’s just say our “gauge” was a little off. We ended up with a tree that seemingly weighed in the 100s of pounds that became more and more difficult to move as I pulled it toward the car.
This year, we chose a small White Spruce that I easily lifted over my head as I carried it out. Nothing to it and it seems just as large.
Here are some pictures of the tree farm and the decorated tree.
