When I was a kid I thought of Christmas as a time where I’d get really cool stuff to play with. However, with age comes wisdom and as I have gotten older I have realized that Christmas time wasn’t about the presents. I have discovered Christmas is more about traditions and making memories with our friends and families that last a lifetime. By far my favorite tradition is finding the perfect family Christmas tree.  There are plenty of local tree farms and most offer outdoor fun such as, sleigh rides and face painting and some places even have the big guy from the North Pole on site!

When I woke up that Sunday morning I was so excited, I was more excited than the kids were. There was a fresh blanket of packing snow. My family and I were off to find the perfect Christmas tree at Drysdale’s Tree Farms. We hopped on to the tractor pulled trailer and headed into the bush. We were excited and the fresh snow made it so much more memorable as the kids started a snowball fight, luckily for me, I specialize in snowball fights and had some fun with them.

We did finally stumble upon our perfect Christmas tree after some searching and I cut it down by hand. We couldn’t wait to get it home and decorate it.

Now at Drysdale’s you don’t have to cut down a tree they have pre-cut trees available too, just make sure you give it a fresh cut on the bottom so it will drink the water you give it to keep it fresh and green until the new year. They can also wrap your tree and drill the base for use with their special tree stands, it is by far the best way to keep your tree upright.

    Thank you!

  3. Years ago I interviewed Doug Drysdale. I found his quote today because what he said stuck with me and I think it’s worth sharing: “Young, vigorous growing trees are nature’s most efficient oxygen producers. Just one acre of trees provides oxygen for 18 people and an ideal environment for wild turkeys, deer, rabbit and fox. Tree plantations also recharge our precious water table.”
