Time to Buy a Christmas Tree
Tis the season to experience the fun and joy of Christmas tree shopping with the family. I can remember many Christmases on our farm in Dodson. My Dad and I were the Christmas tree scouts all year long and we would tag the perfect tree and then find our way back into the woods in December to chop it down. Today, shoppers can travel to tree farms and enjoy the same family experience I did as a child. I can remember circling the tree checking for open spots before, I said, "This is the one." Today, commercially grown trees have no open, void spots, so all the trees are perfect, just select a height and head to the check out counter.
