Christmas Camp: How to Find Your Christmas Tree

You’ll need a tree. You can buy a live one, cut down your own, or use an artificial tree. Each has its’ advantages. Live trees purchased from a Christmas tree lot bring the smell and feel of a traditional Christmas tree into the house without the necessity to go out to a farm and cut one down. It’s convenient. Cutting down your own Christmas tree is a totally different tradition and experience than picking one off the lot. You can turn that adventure into a very memorable day. And, artificial trees (most of themĀ  pre-lit these days) are always perfect, cut down on prep time and ultimately economical. The downside is they have to be stored every year (and they take up a lot of a room) and they are heavy. It’s all a matter of personal style. To help you along with the process, we have a couple of videos for those who go the “cut your own tree” route. The first one is from the U.S. Forest Service and covers what to wear, take, and look for when you go into the forest to get a tree. Lots of very good safety information and how-to. The second video emphasizes cutting the tree down but also good information on tree maintenance after you get it home and even how to check out a tree on a tree lot. Whichever way you go, enjoy the adventure.
