Just a Thought

I know everyone can't do this, especially if you have allergies, but before you go out and buy a fake Christmas tree made in China and all of the lights made in China and everything else made in China...think about buying a locally grown Christmas tree or some decorations handmade by local craftsmen, or at least made in the USA.
Just think of all the money we spend at Christmas on decorations, presents, that pretty much all goes to China and benefits our own so little.

Just something to think about.
too bad

Everybody knows what is happening as far as nothing being made in the US anymore, but if they can get something cheap, they really don't care.
We could refuse to buy all of the products China is flooding us with, but we won't because they will always be cheaper than what the US can do.
Cheap always overrides principles.

Yes but for the rediculous prices they charge for the real trees here you can but a nice artificial one and use it every year. Quite possibly if the growers would be more fair in their pricing they would sell more trees

Yes it costs money to raise trees but you guys are going to price yourselves out of business, especially in this economy.

Where are you getting your prices from?? We bought one ( a real one ) in town last year, and it was over 5 feet tall and cost 25-30. It was the prettiest tree we have ever had . That's why we are getting another real one this year. I refuse to drag the fake one down from the attic ever again!

Thats more what I paid to. I don't think 50 is to much for a 6 1/2ft. Thats what I paid last year. Beautiful tree!!!

I would rather pay 100$ for a tree that can be used for many years. I know growers and it costs you at most 8$ to grow a free

Well here is an alternative for you people that don't wanna pay a ridiculous price for a real tree and I know you can't get a fake one for this price either. There is a tree farm in Hampton on browns branch road that only charges $20 per tree no matter what the size. Just travel down 19E thru hampton in the direction of roan mountain and at the gap creek turn to the right u should start seeing wood signs with red letters hand painted. After turning on gap creek its the first left turn onto rittertown road (harmony freewill baptist church will b on the right). Then it will be a right turn onto browns branch. Go approx 2 miles on browns branch rd to house #660 and that's where the tree farm is where u can choose ur own tree and they will cut it down for you. There should be the same wooden signs with red hand painted writing to lead u up there. Their trees are the most beautiful I have ever seen and you can't beat the price anywhere!!

If ur coming off 19E turning onto gap creek then the turn would be to the left onto rittertown. The church will be on the right. There is another tree farm around there too but I hv no clue their prices or quality of trees and its isn't the one I'm referring to.
