Make a lifetime memory this holiday season, by opting to plant a live Christmas tree. If you decide to do so, plan in advance this fall.

First, plan your selection. Consider the ultimate height of your tree at full maturity. Fir, pine and spruce can achieve heights of up to 50 feet or taller, with branch spread of 20-25 feet. Remember when planting a pretty Christmas tree, even one of Charlie Brown's Christmas tree stature, that it is not a foundation plant.
