    I found a good site that lists tree farms in all the states. And they have other good info on their website.

    http://pickyourownchristmastree.org/index.htm


    Every year I take my Son(he is 12) to a tree farm. It is a tradition & we like to find one that is not close to home. I have been doing this with him since he was a toddler.

    Any newbie Dads? Or Dads? It is a good tradition to have, father & Son(or daughter) time together. I recommend it! Also I buy him an ornament every year. I try & find one with the date on it or I put the date on it.

    Great link and beautiful story Sean!

    We cut ours every year too and do special ornaments as well. My mom did this for me and we play it forward :)

    One year we cut a beautiful tree and the darn thing had 4-6" of new growth after sitting in the stand for almost a month. That tree seriously did not want to die.........

    Plus we save ours up for a big ol 4th of July bonfire. Serious flames!! :D

    We have that tradition in my family too. :) I'm not a father, but I am a brand new uncle & my brother and I took my niece (3yrs.) up near the Lassen national forest and got a few tree permits. There was about two feet of snow. The little one had a blast four-wheelin' and playing in the snow (her first time). We hunt for the silver-tip Douglas furs at around 5800' elevation. "Good shit." :D
