Tree Hunting

12/3/22 – Tis the season for tracking down the perfect tree to liven up a living room. Key requirements for a successful tree hunting excursion include; enthusiasm for trudging through snow, a trusty hand saw, sled accompanied by ropes or straps (for securing the tree to the sled and/or car), and a keen eye for spotting the not so elusive Abies balsamea (balsam tree). Also if out and about in the Superior National Forest don’t forget a tree cutting permit which is available online at -Jessica

There’s no shortage of balsam in the Northwoods, but I found it necessary to zig zag my way all over in search of the “perfect” one.
Tools of the trade.
The perfect tree!
