Just a little one, its only 13' 5" Lol, thank goodness for two story houses . For the past 16+ years my family has been going to the same Christmas tree farm up in the Sierra Nevada mountains. We took my 4 year old niece (my wife's sister's kid) with us this year as she was visiting from Phoenix. When she stepped out into the beautiful clean air with all the trees around her comment was "eww, something stinks"! Poor kid, she had grown up in Phoenix . She was shocked by the size of the tree and asked how we were going to get it inside the house lol. I'll try and post some pics this week.

Tim, I used to love going into the Sierra's when I lived in CA specifically for that beautiful scenery and clean air. I lived in the valley near Fresno, only place with worse air is LA. I too would like to know how you're going to get that monster of a tree in the house.

Hopefully you don't break off too many of the needles and don't clog up the vacuum cleaner.

I now officially know this tree is big as my dad asked me if I can help him put the lights and garland on tonight (we are going to have to use 2 ladders lol)! This is the first year he has ever asked for help, he always does it by himself.

SigSam, it actually went in pretty easily except for the fact it's heavier than sin. We had it netted and didn't cut the net until we got it inside and for once cleared all of the furniture out of the way before bringing it im. My brother told her elves were going to help us, when we got it in she asked where the elves went lol. Being fresh, these Christmas trees last forever, could probably keep it up until summer lol.

Dave, we always get monsters but with my parents moving to a 2 story house it allows us to fully use all of the tree (last years was between 11-12 feet).

Sam, they only own ricers so who cares .
