2017 Christmas Tree has Arrived!

We went on our annual Christmas Tree excursion and once again we headed north to a nursery northwest of Kaiser. We got to take the car and trailer over the Wheatland Ferry across the Willamette! Very exciting stuff as this was our first ride across, which took about 5 minutes (if that).

This year we brought home a live 12 foot tall Cedrus Deodara “Aurea” and she is a beauty! We won’t bring her inside until just before Christmas and then we will decorate it with all the Star Trek ornaments (duh). She can only be inside for about a week. Then after the holidays she gets planted on the property somewhere.

It’s a very fun tradition, and hopefully good for the planet too. Happy holidays!
