Someone felt the need for a Christmas Tree and chose a Keteleeria, a rare Asian conifer growing at the Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle. The trees value is estimated at $10,000. Those of us who are into plants know the value is much higher! Considering the tree is not that attractive a Christmas tree, perhaps it was cut down by someone with a grudge? Even good ol' Charlie Brown would know better.
I think we can all agree what kind of Christmas those who cut it down have.
