Live Christmas tree brought home

For the sixth year in a row, the Casa María Marianist Community will be celebrating Christmas with a live tree cut down from Devine Acres Farm. This year, an 8 1/2 foot Leyland Cypress was selected, which fit comfortably inside the Kia Sedona mini van. With sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 60s, it was comfortable enough without a sweater. However, cutting down the tree requires getting close to the ground and into the leaves and branches so pants and long sleeved shirts are recommended. It also is advised to use an electric saw to cut off the end of the tree before immersing in water at home (this was the most difficult step which required the efforts of two community members and one guest using a saw to complete). Plan to set aside about three hours—about 50 minutes drive in each direction, about one hour spent at the tree farm and about 30-45 minutes setting it up at home. Although their website and welcome sign show that Devine Acres Farm is open at noon, the place was filled with customers even before 12 p.m. It would be best to call and confirm their hours.
