The thought of a fake Christmas tree may have its appeal --- no muss, no fuss. But despite the extra effort there's really no substitute for the scent of evergreen in the house in anticipation of the holidays. In fact, for many the "extra effort" is a large part of the pleasure of a freshly cut tree.
Throughout Connnecticut, many not too far from New Canaan, are tree farms offering the "cut your own" option. And if you'd rather not climb a mountain with saw in hand, most of these farms also offer fresh cut trees as well.
