I found the perfect tree (6 feet tall and not too big in diameter). I put a yellow bunting (center tree) on the fraser fir and went back up to get someone to cut it for me. Plenty of folks cut their own but I was glad the owner's great nephew cut mine and dragged it up to my truck.
I feel fortunate to live in an area where Christmas Tree farms are abundant. These farms support local businesses and are a haven for wildlife, particularly birds.
