    not trying to jack the thread but this is one of the more productive threads on here. Too many kids my age waste time on here, And my 2 cents you could easily sell a few on craigslist

    The "tradition" in our family is to go cut the tree the weekend after Thanksgiving. We gone to the same "farm" for the past 12 years.

    All I can say is the guy that runs it has all sorts of side deals, but he says it is a whole lot of work for a little bit of money. The biggest is trimming to shape the trees in the summer.

    There are all sorts of Christmas Tree Grower Assoc., check there for added imput. Trimming the trees isn't bad, goes very quick. But like anything you need the knowledge behind you, certain types of trees grow better at differnt times trim at the wrong time & you screw yourself (loose that years growth). Really research it.

    Do you own the land. Some of the best advantages to a xmass tree farm is the agricultural tax rate.
