I have a Christmas Tree Tip to share but it’s not what you think.
Yesterday, during a heavy snowstrom, we decided to get out of the house and visit our favorite Christmas Tree Farm. We found the perfect tree, brought it home, placed it in the stand and let it warm for the night.
Excited to start decorating, we noticed something odd about the tip of the Christmas tree. The tip was roped onto the trunk! At some point the tip broke off and someone decided to tie it back onto the tree and pass it off as good!
Here are pictures:
We love our tree, and we have since removed the rope and replaced it with black plastic ties which are a lot less noticeable, but it’s a little disappointing that our favorite tree farm passed this off as a perfectly good tree (actually, they had it up front as a showpiece).
I don’t believe the tree should have been tossed, but at least inform the buyer the tip is not part of the tree and can’t be watered; Perhaps a discounted section would be appropraite?
Question: Was it my responsibility to notice this before I bought the tree?
