Oh, noble fir
I don’t know what a Holidash is, but there was an article by Katie Kretschmer on something called holidash.com on choosing a Christmas tree.
At our house, we go in the garage and pull the little runt off the shelf.
But I remember a time when I bought live trees and replanted them in the yard—one got to be 15 feet and recently croaked.
But I digress.
The freshest tree probably comes from nearby. You can even cut your own for some big fee.
The Douglas fir usually is not local—but people love it. A classic.
Avoid buying a tree that’s trussed up—you can’t tell what the heck it looks like.
As for watering and those rickety little pans that clamp around the bottom—why don’t they invent something better?
Oh—they have! The garage model.
