The last catchup post for 2015! Hooray!
We like to support local businesses and we typically buy a pre-cut tree from the family-owned local hardware store. But this year we found a local tree grower and got to cut our own.
They grow the trees grouped by type (pine, hemlock, fir) so you can easily find the type you want. This year we chose a hemlock as I really wanted that wonderful aroma in the house. They provided an extremely sharp bow saw and Chris performed the harvest.
