For years I have wanted to try a living Christmas tree. My family has done the “living-as-it-slowly-dies” cut trees, and we have also done the fake trees. While these trees have been beautiful and we enjoyed the memories created around them, I always felt that I wasn’t getting the homerun mix, which for us was 1) Beautiful, 2) Fragrant, 3) Sustainable, and 4) Affordable. Living Christmas trees check all of the boxes! They look and smell like standard cut trees, and for the price, I get my Christmas tree and my beautiful yard which justifies their slightly higher price tag.
It’s easier than you think! Here at Meadow View, numerous employees have extensive experience growing them, and we are gaining more by the day. Our staff can answer questions such as:
Here is a picture of our living tree that we decorated. We chose a Black Hills spruce (Picea glauca “Densata”) because of its traditional Christmas tree look and size, and its “piney” fragrance. (Plus, the kids like it because it sits higher off of the ground due to the root ball, which makes more room for presents. J). Join us as we follow this tree’s adventure in our Christmas home and then into our landscape.
