If you don’t already have that evergreen up with lights twinkling and ornaments sparkling, it may be time to go find a tree! But besides the shape of the evergreen, what do you need to look at when picking a tree? Martha Stewart has the answer!
As you browse, flag favorites with a bandanna so that it will be easier to comparison shop. The first trees to get picked over tend to be the ones near the parking lot, so the farther reaches of a farm might offer a better selection. Leave a good stump on the tree you cut, and trim a half inch at home before putting it in water.
Great advice! Now get the saw and head out!
Sadly, the tree pictured is not a live tree, but the artificial one we have at our home.
