Where To Buy A Christmas Tree in GTA
We don’t like artificial Christmas trees. We had one for some time and mostly because we had a carpet in our living room. Cleaning pine needles from the carpet never sounded attractive to any of us. Once the carpet had been replaced with laminate we started buying real trees for Christmas. And we prefer to select and cut the tree ourselves. Going to the farm to get a Christmas tree became a very important family event, much like having hot chocolate after.
If you feel like you’re fed up with your artificial Christmas tree and this year you would like to get a fresh real one, here are some tips and suggestions for you:
- You will not necessarily find what you are looking for right away. Always select a few locations to visit.
- Dress up properly. You will have to walk around in snow or dirt depending on the weather.
- Don’t forget that it’s getting dark early this time of year. Plan your trip accordingly.
- You don’t need to bring your own tools, they are usually provided at the farm.
- Cash only. All the farms we’ve gone to take cash only. Last year, an average tree would cost you $60 – $70. This year, perhaps, the price will be the same or maybe a bit higher. Plus, keep in mind that coffee, hot chocolate and sweets are offered in most locations, so have an extra $20 just in case.
- And, of course, have a good plan for how you will be bringing your tree home. Tarp and rope may be very handy.
