Where do Christmas trees come from? How do they get to the city? What conservation measures are taken? This behind-the-scenes visit to a Christmas tree farm in Vermont has the answers. Realistic drawings reflect he changing seasons as the story follows the cycle of a tree from spring transplanting through mowing, pruning, and finally the felling of a year’s crop and the transporting to children everywhere.
