Go pick out that flawless Christmas tree

Go pick out that flawless Christmas tree

"If you cut it in between the nodes, taking off individual "fingers" of the tree, or find a natural break, that's always going to look better than if you cut it half way down".

The trees, Barak said, are farm-grown in Estacada and are attractive.

Residents have donated trees in the past, but not every big tree is an ideal candidate due to accessibility: The trees the city takes are usually so big that they have to be taken out with a crane and a flatbed truck.

Tree growers and sellers urge families to start looking for trees as soon as possible, by getting in contact with their favorite lots or farms.

"Our biggest challenges are having enough trees to supply customers and just getting phone calls after phone calls after phone calls of people desperate for trees that don't exist", Jason Hupp of Hupp Farms in OR told the Statesman Journal.

"His hopes were to plant them for pennies and sell them for dollars and that is what he did", Hartung said.

The best way to pick out a fresh tree, Durden said, is to find one that hasn't dried out. The planter is pulled behind a tractor with a person sitting on the planter. Because fewer Christmas trees were being sold, tree farmers responded by planting fewer seedlings.


So we know they're insanely popular, but what are they?

Trees will be purchased and planted in the spring. "I wouldn't be scared to buy one before Thanksgiving", the spokesman added. I finally drove myself to the hospital where I was put in an ambulance and taken to La Crosse to have some heart surgery.

"This has been a part of my life for 27 years". I was flabbergasted. I might have to get out of this business. One local tree farm opened early this year.

"We were the largest choose-and-cut tree farm in the area with 140 acres".

"You want to be able to see the trees and how pretty they are", said Pat Brown.

"The start of a Christmas to remember is coming to the lot with family and friends to find that flawless tree", Barak said. "I've never not had trees going into my season", Elliot said.

Although the permits are for any tree species, the BLM recommends Engelmann spruce, sub-alpine fir, Douglas fir, ponderosa pine and lodgepole pine as the best species to cut for your Christmas tree.
