On Maine Christmas Trees

Some people grab a tree, twirl it around, and if
they don't see a massive bald spot, buy it. Others will tap the trunk on the
ground and if only a few needles fall, they'll buy it. Other folks wait for the
kids to say something cute like "That looks like the tree on Charlie Brown"
before buying one. But there are some practical aspects to picking out a
Christmas tree. There are differences between the types you might find at Maine
tree farms or tree lots this holiday season.
