Our Christmas Tree - Family Room - 2021 Edition
A week ago, we went up to Wisconsin and came home with a pair of fresh-cut Christmas trees from Evergreen Acres. They're both lovely trees that are shaped quite nice and have made both Nat and I realize that we were getting some ratty-looking trees in the past.
Here, below, is our family room tree for 2021:
I've been tracking these trees on the blog over the years. This is the 16th tree that I've documented with the front room one from last year being the most recent (#15).Here's our 2021 Family Room Tree - between 8' and 9' tall and picture-perfect shape.
Here's our 2020 Green Room tree - about 6' tall in total and perfectly shaped.
Here's our 2020 Family Room tree - about 8' tall in total, but really nicely shaped.
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/cultivar of fir trees we've cut down over the years, 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

2019 (Green Room) - Fraser Fir
2020 (Family Room) - Fraser Fir
2020 (Green Room) - Fraser Fir
2021 (Family Room) - Fraser Fir
That's 16 trees that I've posted about on the blog. Three of them were Douglas Firs. Now Thirteen of them have been Fraser Firs. That's 81.25% of the time = Fraser Firs - which I think is the most common tree out there, right?
