Of course it would be nice if we could go out and cut one down like we used to do growing up in Atascadero (on the Central Coast). I loved going to the tree farm with my Dad. He let us pick out which one we wanted and then we watched him cut it down, load it in the back of his El Camino and set it up in our living room.
Living in the city the best option (and most affordable) for us was Home Depot. So off we all went to find our tree.
As soon as we walked into the lot it did not take long for us to find what we were looking for.
