Getting Our Tree in the National Forest

My husband I have a favorite Christmas tradition that we started several years ago. Every year, we cut our own Christmas tree in our nearby National Forest. We leave work early and have a wonderful time tromping through the snow to find just the "right tree."


We find that we really cherish these trees more than a store-bought one. We're helping to thin the forest by taking small trees that are growing in crowded conditions, and it only costs $10, which is a huge savings over a store-bought tree.
