Whether you like to chop it down yourself or prefer to let someone else do the hard work, it's time to make that annual trek to pick out a Christmas tree. An Alexandria area tree care company has some tips to make the process a merry one.

Everyday, Old Town residents, business owners and volunteers use Patch to reach their neighbors with news, events, announcements and fundraisers. Post directly to the site by visiting the Patch boards and clicking on "What do you want to say?"

As a tree expert, he has one secret tip for finding the perfect tree this year: "Pick one that speaks to you," Whetzel says. “A good quality, healthy tree will last for weeks with proper care and maintenance.”
