Holiday weekend begins Christmas tree harvest


FARMINGTON TOWNSHIP, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Thousands of people have used Thanksgiving weekend to get into the Christmas spirit.

One way of doing so is harvesting Christmas trees.

That's what the Pittman family did at Bina's Tree Farm Saturday afternoon.

Amanda Pittman said choosing the family Christmas tree has been a five-year tradition, three of which took place at Bina's Tree Farm.

"We wouldn't do it any other way and the boys have fun with it too," Pittman said. "So, it's just good to get the family out and it's a simple, fun thing to do together and go back, make hot chocolate and decorate."

Bina's Tree Farm opened the day after Thanksgiving.

Owner Tom Bina said already dozens of people have been cutting down their choice of fir, pine and spruce trees.

"If they find a tree they like, and they see other trees that are gonna look nice in a couple of years, they keep coming back," Bina said.

The tree farm is open until Dec. 18.
