It was a splendid afternoon exploring the forest with friends under new snowfall in search of this years Christmas tree. Not to be outdone by last year, we did it once again; we returned from our annual pilgrimage with a tree that won’t even fit in our tiny house! But just like LAST YEAR it has found the perfect spot outside, right in front of our big living room window, complete with bird friendly ‘ornaments’ made from pine cones smothered in peanut butter and rolled in bird seed.
If you want to learn more about how this annual tradition helps the National Forest Service and improves forest health check out THIS POST from last year in which we speak more in-depth about the process, rules and reasoning. It also has an awesome video of the birds enjoying the outdoor ‘ornaments’ we create!☺
