U-cut trees with Wyatt

Today, I'm going to work on the family Christmas tree farm.
I'm going to be in charge of customer service.
I will help the families pick out a tree.
Dad will cut the tree for the customer....
and then we will all have Christmas cookies and cocoa!
 Some of the trees go in the baler.
 Dad shoves them in one end.....
 I wait over here, because it is kinda scary.
 ...and out it comes, all skinny!
 Ready to tie on top of your Lexus car!
Another satisfied customer!

 These are being shipped to California and Texas. Maybe to Benny and Lily's house or Minna Krebs and Lucy's Place!
 I promise, I did not pee on any of them!!
 We are also selling wreaths and cedar garland.
 Most of these are shipped out of state too.
 I spend a lot of time in the mud, chewing tree branches.
 Whose muddy dog is this? Mom pretends she does not recognize me, because I am a mess and now I have to ride home in the truck.
Hope you all get a little greenery in your homes this holiday!
It smells way better than plastic!!

  6. I luv the smell of real Christmas Trees. Christmas isn't Christmas without one for me :) That baler you have is slick!

    Happy Holidays to you Wyatt :)

  7. You are right about the live greens smelling sooooooooooo good, Wyatt! Our grocery stores have balsam wreaths at the entrance and exits and it's wonderful to walk right by them and breathe deeply!
    That baler is really cool!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  12. Nice! Double nice for the muddy dog!
    We will be cutting ours down this weekend. Daddy already picked one out at his friend's farm. Don't think they will take us along because I(June) do not like loud noises. Maybe we'll help them decorate the tree when they get home.

  13. Hi Wyatt. I reckon you will be worn out by the time you get through what must be a busy time of year for you. I agree with you about plastic trees.

  14. Way cool family tree lot. Looks like a great way to spend the day. Just don't get baled! You'd look funny all wrapped up and skinny!

  15. Hey Wyatt!
    Love this post! I've seen trees (and peed on plenty of showed great restraint) but I've never seen that bailer monster before. Don't blame you for keeping your distance. I would stick (get it?) with the sticks and the mud. Much safer than something that might hog-tie you and throw you on a car roof. All joking aside, these pix are great!
    Grr and Woof,

  16. it sounds to me like you have one awesome job!


  17. What a big jobyou have. Would you please send us a tiny Charlie Brown tree. We are in CA
    Benny & Lily

  18. Thank you for the compliments. I love your header too. Gets me in that holiday mood.
    The moose...yes indeed they can do a number on your trees, shrubs, flowers etc. I have found that they are mainly browsers and don't usually kill the whole plant unless they really love it. I have wire netting wrapped around my precious fruit trees. The perennials don't care as long as they don't rip up the roots. The shrubbery can sometimes get a pretty heavy pruning. But as you can see things pop back up in the spring and the cycle of life goes on.
    If I see them out in the yard I usually go and shoo them out and over to the poor neighbors yard or down the street to the woods. They seem to prefer our painstakingly planted delicacies to the standard woods fair, esp. in the winter.
    In a hard winter we can lose up to a dozen local "city" moose to starvation so I try to be tolerant. In the spring I am always hoping they will chose my yard to give birth. Two calves were born across the street in my neighbors yard the year before last and about 15 years ago a single calf was born in my back yard but I was out of town!

  19. Wyatt you are the Man !!! Good job!! I'll bet you went to bed happy that night!!
    We love the small of the fresh tree!! Haven't had one for a few years tho. Been making due with our outside home grown one.
    Love your new color and Christmas look to your blog!!! Very nice!!
    xxoo, Bambi & Fern

  20. Love your banner, Wyatt! Can't believe you also have a Christmas tree farm - what fun! Do you ship to CA??? Mom and Dad love silvertips, but mostly they get CA home-grown trees. But love seeing how you snoopervise the activities and that cocoa looks so warming!!! (We'd have lain in the mud too heheh1)
    Hugs xoxoxo

  21. Wyatt!
    You work very hard!
    I know lots of families are happy getting those beautiful trees!
    Kisses and hugs

  22. What a sweet gig! But I have no idea how you hold it! :)

  23. Oh Wyatt we would buy a tree from you! Just to far though.

    Glad you didn't pee on the trees. LOL

  24. OMD! We just loved these pics Wyatt. Our mommy's daddy (hooman granddad) was an entrepreneur in Pennsylvania and one of his businesses was a Christmas Tree farm called Hoot 'n Holler. They used to ship trees all over PA and to DC and Maryland. This year our mom is commiting the high crime of an artificial tree(RIP Grandpa Miller)because we're leaving for Seattle before Christmas. When mommy first married&left home she whined that there were no good Christmas trees in Elba,Alabama, so Grandpa shipped a 6ft Scotch Pine to her. She had the best tree in the south that year!! Thanks for renewing those old memories.
    Smooches from pooches & Cassie too,

  25. Wow!! You have the coolest jobs ever!! I bet you sell tons of trees!! Your header pic is soooooo cute, too!!
    Love, Janie

  26. WOW! You have your very own Christmas tree farm, Wyatt? Gosh! You must be the luckiest dog that ever, ever lived. I wish we could come buy our tree from you! Are there any that you're sending to Collie-rado? If there are, would you puts my name on one of them, pretty please?

    Wiggles & Wags,
