Anyone ever cut down their own tree before? Is it more expensive than just buying a tree? Did you enjoy it?
Up until I left for college we've always had a real tree. We never went & got a "pre-cut tree" we'd always go & cut it down at a tree farm. I like it, its very nostalgic. As far as prices go they vary. Last year trees on the farm were high because of the drought that GA had been going through. But depending on the height of the tree & the type of tree they vary. But its a lot of fun walking through the farm. Its very peaceful too!
