Every year millions of Christmas trees are purchased from choose-and-cut Christmas tree farms. When suburban families load up the kids, grandma, grandpa and all the pets and take off with a complete lack of knowledge of what they're getting into, you have all the ingredients for some hilarious stories.What could be so tough about planting and watching Christmas trees grow? That's what Darrell thought when he came up with the idea of getting rid of the long-horns and planting a forest. Join Darrell and Betty as they move to the country and find city and country cultures sometimes clash in unexpected ways:

- picture a toddler crawling into a tree baler and coming out wrapped up for Christmas...

- there's more than the scent of pine in the air when Darrell hires his nubile young niece to help the "boys" load cars in the parking lot...

- consider what happens when you introduce an enthusiastic Spanish-only speaking laborer to electric shears with instructions to just "take a little off the edges"...

- if you color-code the price stickers on the trees and your staff doesn't admit they're color-blind...

- and more than you ever thought you could possibly know about growing trees... After twenty years in the business, Darrell looks back on this unique, demanding, exasperating, frustrating but ultimately rewarding profession -- the reward comes from the customers, especially the kids, as families search out that perfect tree. His stories are are heart-warming anecdotes, well-sprinkled with irony and down-home humor. A great, side-splitting laugh of a book you will enjoy reading any time of the year--and you'll never look at a Christmas tree the same way again!
