Field Trip #11 – Elgin Christmas Tree Farm

Some field trips have a practical side to them. This was one. I mean, except for the rare curmudgeon, miser, or Festivus practitioner, who doesn’t place the most recognized of holiday implements in the corner of a prominent room?

The trip to Elgin, Texas was very quick since we live in a nearby town. The staff was helpful, friendly, and courteous. A brief ride out to the trees started the journey. Some pointers on the use of the saw. A quick stroll around the grounds. Tamara, Judah, and Tabitha fairly quickly dispatched our tree of choice (and a brilliant one at that). Judah and crew drug the tree a bit, and a nice gentleman helped to bind and tie the tree to the van.


We’re here.


Which one…which one?


In action.


Tabitha gives it a go.


Triumph! Victory!


A real lumberjack.


Yep. A true man of lumber.


Judah and Moses lend their moral support.
