New England is full of tradition, heading out to the woods to find the perfect Christmas tree happens to be one of my favorite traditions of all. Searching for the perfect tree, crisp winter air scented with evergreen, hot coco and peppermint as you stroll through possibilities while looking for perfect tree. Christmas tree hunting also happens to be a family affair, dogs included. In fact, while we were hunting for our tree at the Ingraham Tree Farm in Georgetown Massachusetts, it seemed every family had brought their dog along.
I would suggest making an afternoon of finding the right tree. Forget the racing around, take your time, bring along some hot chocolate, family, friends and your faithful dog. We had a great time (although I wish I had thought of the hot chocolate for ourselves) exploring the fields of trees, watching our dog check each tree for birds.
You Might Bring:
~ thermos of hot chocolate
~ treats for the dog
~ work gloves
~ poop bags
Find A Christmas Tree Near YouNow we were at the Ingraham Tree Farm on their last day for the season, I have heard good things about Doe Orchards but here is a link to other Christmas Tree Farms in the area. I would suggest looking for one in an area you would like to explore and give them a call. You want to make sure they still have a selection of trees, every season is different. If they provide a saw (most do), cutting down your own tree is part of the fun. Don’t forget to make sure your dog is welcome.
