As projects go, this was an easy one for the husband. Nevertheless, an important one to our family. We don’t have any organic tree growers near us, as far as I know. So, we made the short drive to a local, conventional Christmas tree farm in early December. Running around a field of trees and breathing fresh air is half the fun. The mission was to find our Christmas tree!
We chose the prettiest, medium-sized tree we could find. Chopping it down with the little hand saw adds a fun sense of accomplishment for dads, I think. This little farm in the valley regularly replants its trees.
We chose a Norway spruce. It’s a beautiful tree that holds lots of ornaments. I think the branches are just a bit thinner than on a Fraser fir. Hopefully, plenty of water will keep it fresh through Christmas.
