by the way its spelled ( not) instead of naught.
Meaning of NAUGHT

Definition: [n] complete failure; "all my efforts led to naught"
[n] a quantity of no importance; "it looked like nothing I had ever seen before"; "reduced to nil all the work we had done"; "we racked up a pathetic goose egg"; "it was all for naught"; "I didn't hear zilch about it"

i think you need to look around your area before buying any Christmas Trees.
how many folks already sell trees?
are there any cut your own joints in the area?
Home Depots? Lowes nearby? Nurseries? Flower shops?
find a good lot...location location location.
lot rent? whats the cost?
liability insurance? a must have.
a quality grower witin a reasonable distance.

labor? 12 hour days get pretty long, you may need a break.

most of this has been covered on here somewhere...just had to add to it.
