I am so excited to write about this – because its all about Christmas and bringing back childhood memories!
For the first time in 25 years – I have a REAL Christmas tree this year – a Balsam Fir !
Now of course – I had NO IDEA where to go for a real Christmas tree! After all – it has been so many years ………….and from the photos – my parents bought from a tree lot (Still a fun time judging by the huge smiles! )
Karen and Peter were awesome – they gave us a saw ( by the way they give you saws to cut down your own tree……you just have to return it ( so many dont 🙁 )
They directed us to the tree lot……on weekdays there are certain trees that are $50!………if you go on a weekend they start at $65 and go up in price by the foot ! But the good news is on weekends – they have sleigh rides to add a little more fun for your family affair!
Trees will cost you $50 – $250 (like 15ft trees – those are crazy huge). Our tree was a 12 year old Balsam Fir , almost 9ft tall and it cost us $95 with the baling of the tree (an extra $5 cost which is essential for travel! )
One last thing -although we knew the height of our room….we didn’t take into account the height that the stand adds to it…….hence we were doing a little tree trimming of our own at home! (messy 🙁 )
I am so happy 🙂 . I have to be honest in the fact that I said a hard NO to Bobby when he first brought up a real tree……….but now I am so happy we did ( just don’t tell him!).
Just a quick note- Firever Green sees thousands of customers a year – if you can go on a weekday DO IT….if the only time you have is a weekend- still do it! Just allow yourself a bit more time in the day- it’s worth it!
Also – It’s CASH ONLY- just adds to charm 🙂
