In the summer when most people are thinking about going to the beach and cooling off, the Craft Department is thinking about Christmas. On a hot and sunny morning this past July, Blake and I headed to Simonson Tree Farm in New Jersey to pick out a tree for the Star Power story. We were looking for something a little different with an interesting shape. We ended up choosing a concolor fir. It has soft needles and feels a little different than your classic Christmas tree. It also has an interesting citrusy scent. Check out our Christmas tree glossary to get a sense of the different varieties available and if you want to locate a Christmas tree farm near you, have a look at the Christmas Tree Farm Network. What kind of tree are you going to have this year?
