    Christmas trees







    Do you get a real tree or use an artificial one?

    No tree here this year but it would be real if there was going to be one. What type of real tree do you prefer?

    I cut a few people this year and most wanted spruce and a few wanted fir. Tress here go for about 50 bucks, which I think is insane, but these lucky people got theirs for free.

    What's a tree go for in your area?


    Feel free to post pics of your tree if you want, lets get that HO HO HO spirit going.

    In / around Carroll County, MD, we're probably closer to 60-70 for maybe a 6 or 7' sproce / douglas fir. But these are also you pick em and saw them down tree farms, not the Home Depot or roadside pre-cut trees.

    For the past ~10 years we've gotten one from cut your own places. Last year we got a 12 foot high one. It was $200+.

    We now don't want to have the mess of that, so we just bought an artificial one. Haven't told the (adult) kids yet. They won't approve, but we're sticking with it.

    Always bought real trees as it was a family tradition, however for the last 5 years or so I don't really have the Christmas spirit anymore, so I bought a fake tree and my wife just puts it up for the grandchildren.
    On the list for Bannukah

    Got a fake one that we have up in our basement. We liked it so much that we just left it up all year and use it as a colorful light source. Our neighbors left their outside Christmas lights up all year and turned them on every night...even during the summer. So at least we aren't the only weird ones

    I'll try to climb to the top of a Douglas Fir (or more likely follow a friend who's a much better tree climber), got to be >= 100ft, to get me in the mood. That's rare sized for trees in my part of the country (but there are much larger in other parts UK) so not too many to choose from round here. Still need to get up one this year! (This is from last year https://imgur.com/gallery/Zj7FUUh)

    Then trim the top out of someone's tree that needs pruning. Last year it was a the top 7 foot from a Fraser Fir --> spiky! Not sure whose tree needs pruning, but people usually happy to get a tree pruned for free. I have one in my garden that needs pruning, also a Fraser Fir but it had had the top out before so it's not a good shape for a Christmas tree.

    I'll let you know when/if I find a good one
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.

    It's interesting to read the comments and see the price of trees.

    We had real trees most years since I was old enough to remember. Never paid for any, we just went in the bush and cut them. I cut a bunch this year for folks who can't get out and get their own anymore.

    I've always had artificial as I can't be bothered looking after a real one or cleaning up the needles. I have a balsam candle that gives a nice artificial-pretending-to-be-real smell, lol...

    I live in a small house, so I have a 4ft tree that I put on top of a table and I think it's pretty, and the twinkle lights make the room cozy. My sister lives in an enormous house and gets a 15 foot real tree. It takes them days to decorate!!

    I do buy real greens for the front door and the front patio. I have a little bright red wooden sleigh that my grandfather made me when I was but a toddler and I put an evergreen plant in that.

    One year we had a perfectly shaped natty tree, it never dropped any needles, I kept watering it and it just stayed alive. We couldn't throw it out, so my Daughter and her Mom made it into a Valentine's tree.

    I think it was still alive when I finally pulled it out that spring. Wish it had given me a pinecone.

    We always put ours in a 5 gallon bucket, and kept adding water. It stretches the tree out pretty good.

We made a hinged wooden box that would encase the bucket. Many cats climbed to the top and it never came down once and we had some big trees in it. Everyone did that back in the day, no one ever had artificial trees. The amount of water a fresh tree can suck up will amaze you.

    Had that setup for decades, just gave it away last week, I am done with the xmas tree thing now, it was a good run but if I want the experience again, I'll just go look at someone else's lol.

    That sounds like a lot of work.

    Not at all, but I guess it depends on how handy you are.

    We haven't put a tree up in 4-5 years, kids are ages 38-41 and don't come up so no reason to.

    I'm handy but my tree hasn't fallen over in 5+ years so maybe I'm getting the hang of it.

    Son was home from college, helped me cut down the tree and helped her decorate it. We took him back to school and she was misearble every time she looked at the tree after that.

    Just isn't the same without little kids in PJ's throwing wrapping paper all over the living room on Christmas morning.
