What makes the perfect Christmas tree and where do you find it?
N.H. residents and local business owners have plenty of tips for you to find out.
Some people choose the "big box stores" like Home Depot because of the convenience.
"It's close to home really," says Migel Ugarte of Nashua. "We needed staples for decorating the house with light and everything."
Contrary to that, Lisa Gosselin has a different belief "We thought, if we're going to buy a Christmas tree, it might as well benefit local charities instead of you know, buying from home depot or some other place."
Gosselin purchased her tree from the Nashua Rotary Club and the proceeds go to help organizations within the Nashua community.
And then, there is the tradition of setting out to cut down the ideal tree "We pick out our fresh tree" says a woman at the Noel's Tree Farm in Litchfield. She continued to say that it has been a family tradition for many years and the smell of the tree is beautiful.
There are so many trees to choose from, what makes it the best one you may ask...
Owner of the Noel's tree farm gave some tips on how to pick one out of the bunch.
"What you want to do is, you want to take a branch and just carefully slide your hand across the branch," she says. "If you don't get needles, than yo know it's a nice fresh tree".
She also explained how to care for the tree to help it live longer and prevent a fire.
"Once you've cut the tree and you've got it home, you have to put it in water immediately because you don't want to butt part of the tree to seal" she says. "Once it seals, it won't absorb any more water and that's how fire usually start"
Granite Staters have lots of options to find their perfect tree, according to the National Christmas Tree Association, there are more than 200 places to buy a tree in N.H.
