We've got a fake Christmas tree taking up storage space in the garage, and it's staying there this December as we went out to a tree farm in Pierce County to cut down a fresh tree this year.
Tree hunting is easy. Finding a u-cut location isn't. I had my mind set on a location I had driven past many times off Eatonville Cutoff Rd. on my way to Rainier but couldn't remember the name. Googling led me to the Puget Sound Christmas Tree Association (there's an association for everything, right?), which led me to Cox Christmas Tree Farm -- the place I had in mind! The website isn't much, but the operations and selection on-site is awesome.
Amanda took to the camera and I took to the saw.
For all you Snatch fans...
Paolo vs. Fraser.
The price range... most trees were between $40 and $50.
Weapon of choice.
Time to slay the beast.
Paolo beats Fraser!
You think I'd carry that tree the whole way back? Ha! That's what we pay for!
Wrapped and ready for the Jeep.
We ended the tree farm adventure with complimentary cider to warm us up for the drive home.
