If you want to cut down your own tree and support a local conservation organization hit up the East Glastonbury Fish and Game Club Tree Farm in December. Not only will you be able to support a good cause but it also provides for quality family time and lots of photo ops with your Lomo camera.
The East Glastonbury Fish and Game Club located in Marlborough CT is a local conservation club that is completely owned and operated by its members. During the month of December they sell Christmas trees but you have to cut that thing down yourself.
The great thing about this place is that the trees are cared for all year long by the club members. So maybe the trees aren’t conventionally beautiful but they are charming. The family atmosphere of the place is second to none and you are supporting a local group of guys who are out there trying to preserve a little piece of the great New England wilderness.
