When I was growing up, I couldn’t wait for the day after Thanksgiving — not so that I could hit the mall, but so that my family and I would head out on the hunt for the perfect tree. The Milwaukee area has numerous options where you can start your own family tradition of searching for and cutting down your own Christmas Tree. Many of these locations offer more than just your standard tree selection and have handmade holiday shops, fresh wreaths and garlands, and more.
