Well, it took a tractor ride around the whole Christmas tree farm, ten people weighing in with opinions about the kind of tree (Scotch pine? Frazier fir?), the height (as big as possible! not as big as the whole room!), the fullness (you can see through it! but the ornaments will hang nicely!) to who would cut it down (Tony's got the Carhartt's on! Julian's the Boy Scout!).
We did it, and got it home, and in its stand, and in the livingroom with unbelievable ease.
A couple hours and several dozen trips up and down the ladder later, we had a Christmas tree!
(Douglas fir, perfect shape, seven feet tall, just full enough, cut down by Matt, Julian and Tony).
