    Finally was cold enough with snow on the ground that it felt right to get the tree. The HF firewood cart makes a mighty fine Christmas tree skidder. Merry Christmas everyone.

    One thing we love is to cut our tree from our own place but this year was tough finding one. Lost our snow but it is trying to snow now.

    Looks like fun.
    We had a fresh cut tree once. It was the crappiest tree we ever had. We tossed it on December 26. It only had about 7 needles left on it by then. Trees from the guy we buy from now are still alive in late January.

    I've found that the temps matter when we cut it. We have spruce trees around here, and prefer their spare, delicate branches to the imported from L48, whose heavily-needled trees make it hard to see the decorations and lights. If we cut when it's really cold, the tree is shedding needles as we move it. If it's up above 20 or so (+20F), the needles hold a lot better, and can even start to green-up in the tips.

    However, those imported trees sure smell nice.

    You're supposed to water 'em? :)



    Yes. It was watered regularly.
