Things to Avoid When Selecting Your Christmas Tree

When choosing a tree this year for Christmas, make sure that you only buy from a reputable dealer. There are some fly by night companies that sell unhealthy trees and others that will even sell trees that are not theirs to sell.
One of the most famous examples of people being taken advantage of when buying their Christmas tree was back in the 1980's. A fraternity from Syracuse University took a man up on an offer to cut down 200 live trees for $5 a piece so that they could sell them for $9 to help raise money from their house. When the fraternity brothers showed up on the site to cut down the trees, neighbors thought it was unusual. It turns out that the man who sold the fraternity the trees did not even own the land. When the police showed up, they allowed them to leave with the trees that they had already cut down, but they were out the money they paid the crook who took advantage of them.
While this case may be extreme, you do want to use a little common sense when purchasing your fresh trees, wreaths or garland this year. It is unfortunate, but there are opportunists out there who are always looking to make a quick buck. Using a little caution will make sure that you will find a Christmas tree that you and your family will be proud of.
If you buy from a Tree Farm directly, you should be safe. Most often the owners of the farm are right there in front of their home or office doing the sales. If you buy your Christmas trees in a parking lot of a business, make sure the trees are fresh. Also, if something doesn't feel right or if you get the feeling the sellers are price gauging, don't be afraid to walk away from the deal and look elsewhere for your Christmas tree.
A method of purchasing fresh trees, wreaths and garland that is becoming more popular is ordering them online for front door delivery. Companies like Christmas Farms will actually ship fresh Christmas trees right to your door. That way you don't have to worry about going out and hauling a bulky Christmas tree back to your house.
No matter which route you choose in choosing your fresh Christmas tree, wreaths or garland, just keep in mind that if it sounds too good to be true it probably is.
