Cutting down a Christmas tree as a family experience is a wonderful bonding moment for the family as well as a great photo opportunity for scrapbooks and children's photo albums.
1. Plan ahead. Measure where the tree will go and measure the tree before you cut it down to make sure it will fit.
2. Inspect the trees. Feel the branches. Does it feel alive? Does it smell good?
3. Look at the trunk (base) of the tree. Make sure it will safely fit in your tree stand.
4. Get the tree home as safely as possible and then directly into water.
