2022 Green Room (Front Room) Christmas Tree - 2022
Yesterday, I updated my annual Christmas Tree Tracking series with a post about our Family Room tree - a Fraser Fir from Wisconsin. This post documents the smaller tree in our front room - the Green Room that has far less ornaments. It is in the front window and is the one that's visible from the outside. This is...Nat's tree. The other one is for the rest of us.
I've been tracking these trees on the blog over the years. This is the 19th tree that I've documented.
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

That's 19 trees that I've posted about on the blog. Three of them were Douglas Firs. Now 16 of them have been Fraser Firs. That's 84% of the time = Fraser Firs - which I think is the most common tree out there, right?
