Spruce It Up 

Tree hunting in Middlesex - MEADOW RIDGE FARM
  • Meadow Ridge Farm
  • Tree hunting in Middlesex
The Greeks and Romans were among the first to bring evergreen boughs inside during the winter months — evidence that humans have long appreciated the many benefits of cut conifers. Harvesting your own boughs, wreaths or trees is a great family activity, provided everyone dresses warmly. Advance research on varieties guides the selection process: Fraser, balsam or spruce? A sled helps haul the greens — and the kids — out of the woods. Also, check with your local municipality or solid waste district for information about "treecycling" options after the holidays are over. Happy Sawing!

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
