    If your looking to save some money, Menards has great trees for a really good prices. We bought 2 trees last night, one 8-9 foot for us and one 6-7 foot for our elderly aunt who lives upstairs from us. Both Frasier Furs although they had about 3 different other kinds. In total we spent $75 on 2 beautiful trees. No, unfortunately the $ doesn't support a school or a noble purpose, it just keeps more $ in your pocket book that creates opportunity for you to then support a worthy cause :)

  • For cut your own tree...We used to go to Richardsons Xmas Tree Farm in Spring Grove...They also have a barn with misc. ornaments, fresh donuts, coffee and cider...Great if you have kids !
