    After you pick out a tree, the next challenge is getting it safely home. Don't forget to bring something to tie your tree down with. Twine or bungee cords work great.

Christmas is right around the corner, and many tree farms are just as close.
You can load up the family and head to a farm to stroll through rows of trees until you find just the right one.
Many farms offer more than just trees, from a cup of hot cider or cocoa to family photos in front of a decorated cabin.
