We cut down our own Holiday Tree this weekend. Got lost, got cold, worked hard with a blunt saw. In other words, tons of fun!
A fresh tree lasts longer, smells amazing, and hopefully creates a fun family outing. Make sure the seller saws the trunk at the length and diameter where it should go into the tree stand. We ended up sawing again when we got home.
