Timber! Christmas tree cutting season at Green Bluff

Posted: Updated:
GREEN BLUFF, Wash. -

The Apple Cup is a famous day-after-Thanksgiving tradition, and so is chopping down a Christmas tree.

Families seeking the perfect Christmas tree made their way to Green Bluff Friday.

Jason Morrell of Walter’s Fruit Ranch says his trees cost $50, no matter the size.

“When people ask what we do, I tell them I sell experience,” said Morrell. “You’re going to get a tractor ride, you’ll learn a little about the tree and how we grow them, and at the end you get to cut your own tree.”

Walter’s is open Friday’s, Saturday’s, and Sunday’s, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Other Christmas tree farms in Green Bluff include Dietz’ Christmas Tree Farm, Green Bluff Christmas Tree Farm, Big Barn Brewing Company, and 238 Brewing Company.

Morrell encourages cutting down Christmas trees from a farm because it’s good for the environment.

    A Spokane business owner says enough is enough after finding human feces in front of her doorstep three days in a row. The incidences happened at Neat Old Stuff located at 3rd and Bernard.
