Christmas tree shopping in Oregon is often a bring-your-own-hand-saw occasion.
On this week’s episode of Peak Northwest, we eschew the store-bought experience to discuss two ways to cut down your own Christmas tree locally.
There are pros and cons to both U-cut farms and harvesting from the forest, but each provides a similar experience – an outside, muddy boots, sawdust experience – that (for the right people) injects a little more magic into the holidays.
Here are some highlights from this week’s show:
- Vickie tells the tale of her first U-cut experience in Oregon.
- Pair your Christmas tree cutting with… hot dogs?
- Jamie remembers harvesting a tree from the Mt. Hood National Forest.
- Everything you need to know before getting a Christmas tree permit.
