I'm not sure I would. I'd hate to cut them.

I'd love to grow them, hate to cut them, but what happiness they bring . . .

I guess they would be a lot easier to cultivate than crops you have to plant and pick every years, but you have to wait more years to get a financial return.

Must be a hard life...
And I'd be worried to make money once a year only. :)
God bless you!

humm... I would like the setting of a Christmas tree farm, but the work must be backbreaking. I'll stick with what I'm doing now... drinking coffee and blogging :^)

Not sure Brattcat, but I would like to have that fab view out of my window!

Sharon said...

I think I have to agree with ciel, I'd hate to see them cut down.

I've tried. It ain't easy.

WEll it sounds and from here, looks like a grand J.O.B. Maybe it's not all that easy but you sure could put smiles on many faces.

I don't even like "living" Christmas trees!

And I certainly would not want to cut down these beautiful things. When the kids were young, we bought real little fir trees to use as our Xmas trees and then we'd plant them in the yard Xmas morning.

A lovely photo but the idea of owning a tree farm doesn't appeal to me for a variety of reasons. As I grow older I'm having second thoughts about lots of things, and cutting down trees is one of them.

It would be a peaceful, lovely life if you can endure the first 10 years it takes for the first 'crop,' to come in...

Not me. I'm a city kid and have black thumbs. The image is an ironic mixture of natural and unnatural.

Library Jewel said...

Yes! And that's what I wrote about today!

Jack said...

No, growing Christmas trees wouldn't work for me. Or, as our President calls them, holiday trees.

Interesting picture with the old, the middle age and the youngs.
Why not after all. With a "choose and pick your own" sign at the right time of the year. But would the return be enough for a living?

Choppography said...

Nope. But I sure would like to cut my own one day. We are fake tree people because it just isn't too economically feasible to buy a tree every single year. I assume it's because we don't have many tree farms nearby. I really like your composition here.

Rob and Mandy said...

Certainly not. Would hate seeing them go.

Jilly said...

No. They look so unnatural in the landscape, somehow. And why do they sell Christmas trees that you can't replant? Not good...
