I know you can buy Christmas trees anywhere. just wondering if there might be a better place to get a tree than where we have been going the last few years (lot on Heatherdowns and Key). Nothing really wrong with the trees, but in discussions with co-workers today about the cost of Christmas trees, it appears they are a bit overpriced. I'm not going to cut down my own tree or go to someplace in Michigan. Also would prefer to not buy at somewhere like Lowe's or Home Depot. What say you, TT?

Here is a nice one.
Christmas Trees for Troops this year.
There is usually a lot in Perrysburg by Churchill's where we used to get our tree's
Matthes Tree Farm in Ida, they have a good Santa and whole Christmas experience.
since you don't want to cut your own, I'd second Whitehouse Tree Farm. Duke Wheeler and his family are good people and they've got a great selection of trees.
We used to buy trees at that same tree lot at Heatherdowns and Cass, but they got to be so overpriced that we started cutting our own down. The place we go now, I absolutely LOVE...and you can cut your own OR choose from a few that they cut down every day that are sitting out in front. It's Alexander's Tree Farm, and it's right off Rt.6 in BG just E of 199. It's $30 for any tree on the lot, and they have 5 acres. The pre-cut trees that they have sitting out in the front (right by the driveway) are really beautiful!
Never understood why people kill trees to put in their houses for a few weeks then burn them or put them on the curb... I just dont get it. We use artificial. No tree killing at my house.
Same reason people burn petrol that is supposedly killing "mother earth" to ride jet skis & four wheelers or fly on fume emitting airplanes to go to tropical locals on vacation... because it brings them enjoyment.
We enjoy the trip to the tree farm, they have pony rides, a petting zoo, horse drawn carriage rides, and a "real" Santa. My kids love the trip to the tree farm almost as much as Christmas day. And they smell awesome!
Swantucky, you must be the target reader for Kelly Heidbreder's recent so-called garden column in the Blade. She recommended an artificial tree, pre-lit, and all-plastic ornaments! ;-)
Yeah, we ended up just buying at that place at Key and Heatherdowns. At $58 it was a little pricey, but it is a very nice tree indeed and we were back at our house in less than 25 minutes. Laziness triumphs over thrift again.
