Did Ruby tree farms for a couple of years...

did Blakes for a few...

Trees seem scrappy.

We need a new place to try to get a nice tall tree. 8-11 ft.

Anyone have a favorite?

I bought a fake tree last year, complete with lights on it, and I am not going to put it up this year!

Ba-hum-bug!

MJ It's up in Ruby, Mi. Exit 257 I think. It's a nice place but the trees are scaggely.

We get a real tree for the family memories! Tramping through the trees, searching out that perfect tree, cider, donuts, usually a warm fire....

I am thinking Santa's Pride in Romeo...


Still searchin'

Just buy a fake, pre-lit one. Its SOOOOO much easier, and no needles.

Please let us know how it goes, and where it is in Romeo! We are taking our 2 year old to get his first X-mas tree! He is very excited, and we are going on Sunday. Thanks!

What? The kids forced you to get a real one?

I would think that when I have kids, that would give me even less time to try to deal with a real tree.

Out of my 29 Christmases (or is the plural form Christmasi?) I've NEVER had a real tree.
