Christmas is right around the corner and that means it is time to get the family and head out for that perfect tree.
None of that Walmart plastic tree stuff. I mean the perfect fresh cut tree that when you walk in the room, the smell of the balsam just blows you away.
It seems like there is someone selling trees around every corner, and if you are like my wife, you have searched them all to find the best place with that perfect tree. So I asked Mrs Montyslist, to tell me where to get the best smelling, perfectly shaped and freshest tree.
This is what I found:
735 Morrissey Boulevard, Dorchester, MA 02122
Farm Features: Restrooms, Wrapping Service, Cutting Service
Type of Cutting Available: Pre-Cut
Pre-Cut Tree Types: Balsam Fir, Fraser Fir
Pembroke, Dorchester and Weymouth
This by far is my favorite place to get a tree on the South Shore. If you do not live close, it is worth the drive. They have the best selection of Balsams Scoth Pines and wreaths of every size.
Lamberts in Pembroke and Hingham also has live garland and live trees to choose from.
The best part though is that these trees are fresh. I swear they get a delivery everyday. The trees do not drop their needles on the way to the car.
No need to drag your tree to the car, as they’re patient ( you have to shake a lot of trees to please mrs montyslist), really nice and take the time to explain the trees diffenences to you, then carefully wrap each one, then bring the tree to your car and tie it down, so that you dont have to worry about losing it as you turn a corner.
Lamberts would get my vote as the number one place to buy your Christmas trees and decorations on the South Shore.
