Christmas Tree 911

We went to Home Depot in our area to pick up a Christmas tree for this year. To our horror, they were sold out. And not only were they sold out, but other places were either sold out, or asking anywhere from $50-70 for each tree.

$50-70? Forget that!

After two days of dragging our baby around, looking for a tree just so we could experience our first Christmas with her the right way, we finally found an independent seller on the corner of Hwy 7 and McCowan.

Honestly… we were completely caught off guard with how fast the trees went this year. I decided to do some research on out of town tree farms just in case we ever find ourselves in this situation again.

For those who are having trouble tracking down a tree for a reasonable price, here’s a link from Toronto.com that features a list of Christmas tree providers:

I did skim through this list and found myself visiting websites to tree farms up in Stouffville, where my family and I will most likely drive up to for next year’s tree.

My take on tree farms… what a great excuse to spend the day with one’s family and/or friends outside in the crisp, cold winter air. Some places provide tobogganing, free hot chocolate or hot cider and a fire place.
