Annual U-pick Christmas Tree Tradition in Nova Scotia

I have been getting my Christmas trees from the T. Ernst Forest Christmas tree farm since I was a kid.

The light & snow was a perfect combination for Christmas tree picking.

This annual holiday trip is an important part of my Christmas tradition and the fresh snowfall and dramatic light created the perfect winter wonderland of Christmas trees.

As I mentioned in my previous weekly photography post "How to tell a Visual Story with your Photographs", trips like this are a perfect opportunity to practice telling a visual Story with your own photography.

The folks at the T. Ernst Forest Products Inc. Christmas tree farm, near Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia are amazing and kind folks. They really take the time to add to the fun of  this Christmas tradition.

When I was little, my Grandfather would get our Christmas tree from this farm. When I got older I started the same tradition and now I continue this tradition with my little ones.  They always look forward to picking out their own tree and of course riding on the trailer. 

So many beautiful trees to choose from, you just can't help yourself from singing christmas songs when you look for that "one" perfect tree.

If you have never been to a U-pick Christmas tree lot be sure to give it a try.  You may find it becomes a new tradition for you and your family.

Below is link to the Christmas Tree Council of Nova Scotia website and a list where you can find a U-Pick Christmas tree farm in your area.
