The debate continues in Oregon as prices for fake trees drop and the economy bristles with a cold wind in the Willamette Valley. We purchased our Noble Fir (Abies procera) from a Christmas tree farm located in Corvallis, Oregon.
It was the fastest tree hunting trip ever for us. We wanted a skinny, tall tree to fit in a small spot in our main living area. We picked the first one we looked at, shoved it into the Honda Element, propped it up and decorated it within a few hours. After the holidays, the boughs will be cut off the tree and are used for bird habitat and mulch in the garden.
I have two small fake trees decorated with garden themes in the hallway and the stair landing. Did you go fake, real or both this year?
