Our Christmas Tree - Family Room Tree - December 2020
Earlier this year, I posted about the new (to us) Christmas Tree Farm up in Wisconsin called Evergreen Acres and how we cut down a handsome pair of trees and brought them home. One of those trees has gone in our front green room (more on that in a separate post) and the other one ended up in our Krinner XXL tree stand in our family room. Here it is below:
The tree is about two feet shy of our ceiling, so let's call it eight feet tall. It is a lovely tree that is also drinking a TON of water - all the way up until now (mid-December).Here's some of our previous Christmas trees from over the years.
Here's our 2019 Family Room tree that we bought from Wannemakers. Was taller than 2020's tree.
Here's our 2019 (small) Green Room Tree.
Here's our 2018 Family Room Tree.
Here's v1 of our 2017 tree - our first in Downers Grove.
Here's v2 of our 2017 tree - the one in our family room.
Here's our 2016 tree - our last one in Elmhurst.
Here's our tiny tree from 2015 at Equation Boy/Man and Vic's house.
Here's the tree in 2014 at our old house.
Here's the post of our 2013 Tree. We kept it in the same position once again.
Here's the post (on google+) of our 2012 Tree.
Here's the post of our 2011 Tree.
Here's the post of our 2010 Tree.
As for species of trees we've had, here's the list (starting with the oldest first):
2010 - Fraser Fir
2011 - Douglas Fir
2012 - Fraser Fir
2013 - Fraser Fir
2014 - Fraser Fir
2015 - Douglas Fir
2016 - Fraser Fir
2017 (Family Room) - Douglas Fir
2017 (Green Room ) - Fraser Fir
2018 (Family Room) - Fraser Fir
2018 (Green Room) - Fraser Fir
2019 (Family Room) - Fraser Fir
2020 (Family Room) - Fraser Fir
That's 13 trees that I've posted about on the blog. Three of them were Douglas Firs. Ten have been Fraser Firs. That's 76/9% of the time = Fraser Firs - which I think is the most common tree out there, right? I'll post about our Green Room tree from this year and tip the scales further in the Fraser Fir-direction before the year is out.
