Inhumane??

Does anyone know how the Christmas trees are treated on these FARMS? I've seen several trees left to pasture in all kinds of terrible weather. If its 30 below or some kind of blizzard they should bring them into the barn or at least have some kind of shelter for them. Also I've never once seen the Christmas Tree Farmers out there with any oats or hay. The trees are just left out there to fend for themselves. SAVE A TREE, EAT BEEF!

I believe there is a place on the way to Shilo. It's off of hwy 340, there should be a sign near the road.

We got ours there yesterday..

Looks like he may not be fully operational next year as he is working much more and doesn't have as much time to devote to the Christmas trees.
