Time to Cut Your Christmas Tree

Our annual holiday tradition includes heading out to a local tree farm and cutting down our tree. We've done this for years, in all kinds of weather, and living in New England for so many years (and for 2 years in Minnesota) this usually meant cold, snowy weather - MINUS 25 in Minnesota one winter! And lots of tree farms.

We were so pleased to find that we could do the same here in Southern California, although the trees are different (Monterey Pine and Noble Fir are popular and grow well in this climate), and fewer folks seem to go for cutting down trees as opposed to the ones on the lots.

We have now gone to Mission Pine Tree Farm in Fallbrook for 3 years in a row, so it has become our new California tradition in our Carlsbad home. They are located at 4062 South Mission north of the 76 (Mission). Phone them at (760) 728-5262.

Here is a list of places for trees from the local newspaper, with some advice on picking the right tree. And if you are outside my area, here is a huge list of tree farms around the country.
