one of the pleasures of living in the PNW.  we get to crawl around in the mud cutting our own trees!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

We do that here in New England too.
You can go and pick yours out in the spring and tag it and come back in Decemeber to cut it down or just choose one when you get there in December.
When I was growing up it was only $10.00 to cut your own, they have gone up now but its still not as expensive as some of the trees they see in the parking lots and nurseries.
My daughter's boyfriend lives on 70 acres and they grow trees for Christmas as well.
Lots of fun cutting them down!
Good job picking out your tree Irwin, have fun decorating it too.

Sounds like my husband too Irwin. He likes to sit on the couch with a cup of coffee and watch. He gets up to help with getting the angel to the top of the tree though if we can't reach.
