We are responding to the question from Tom and Nancy Coller in the Observer recently. Yes, we also received one of the trees from the Morenci Deli during the gas promotion. It was a blue spruce pine tree about one-foot tall. It was kind of shabby looking at the time, and we did really wonder if it was going to make it. But today, what a beautiful tree it is.
We decorate this tree every Christmas with lights and a few things surrounding it. We could have used more lights this year as we’re now up to six or seven strings of lights. We use an eight-foot ladder and an eight to 10-foot pole with a hook on the end to reach near the top. We used to put a star on top, but at 18 to 21-feet tall, it is a little out of our reach.
It is in the northwest corner of our lot and is lit up during the Christmas season. We’re so glad to hear others had some trees that made it.
