Christmas Tree Hunting

by Robert Maxwell

Even in my rural community of Manitoulin Island, almost nobody gets real Christmas trees anymore. Artificial trees are certainly easier, and I don't want to knock them, but I was raised on real Christmas trees cut from the back lot of my parents' land, and I want to keep that tradition alive. This December marks the second Christmas my wife and I have spent in the forest cabin I built, and the first with our baby daughter Lily. We plan to raise her with the tradition of real Christmas trees, too. Click and watch the video below for a tour of my hunt for this year's tree.

    Great video Robert. It made us feel we were right there with you.
    You are so lucky to live where you are, in the middle of nature.
