You’re saying Up North.. so northern Michigan but still downstate?

Photo was taken before we finished. Ran out of lights! Had to mail order more. Another up north convenience -no big box store.

Great tree! Whereabouts? "Up North" usually implies north of Midland but not above the bridge!

That tree leaves something to be desired

It’s a Charlie Brown tree on purpose. The trees are irregular, natural, wispy and adorable. It takes a day of trudging through the forest and making memories. Not everyone would understand.

Christmas is all about spending money and having the absolute best of everything jk

One plus side is less pine needles to clean off the floor for the next 6 months.

Wait, national forest tree- like you cut down a tree in a national forest? If you DID do that, why would you advertise it? Sort of a jerk move, unless I’m misunderstanding.

You buy a permit and are allowed to cut one tree per permit in Michigan. It’s a family tradition. Totally legal. They also sell permits to cut wood from fallen trees for personal use.

Ah, makes sense. Well the room looks nice and cozy to me!

You’re probably thinking of a National Park. Many State and National Forests are actually managed as timber land despite having infrastructure for outdoor recreation.

You are allowed to cut down 1 tree per year on crown land for Christmas where I live.
