How old is our Christmas tree?

how-old

I sawed off a slice, as one does, before bringing it in the house and standing it in water. We forgot to ask where it came from (Nova Scotia?) but we know it’s a Fraser Fir. Now can we find out how old it was when it went to market?

Things get a little iffy around the middle.

    • Ours is a nice, bushy 6-footer… probably the shortest one we’ve ever had, but it fits our little house better than taller ones have. I thought I could count back through 8 years of rings pretty easily, but then the story got a little muddy. Sort of like the milliseconds before the Big Bang, eh?
