Local Christmas tree stands offer their tips on getting the right Christmas tree and keeping it healthy.
Thanksgiving has passed, the table is cleared and most of us have awoken from our deep tryptophan induced comas.

Big John's Christmas Trees sets up shop in Dunwoody for the holidays
The scent of pine needles in the air in Dunwoody Village means one thing – the Christmas season is here. Saturday morning, workers with Big John's Christmas Trees, an Atlanta Christmas tree company, began setting up shop in a Dunwoody Village. Lot Manager Chris Wing and his co-workers Sam Fulbright and Billy Betz spent the day unloading trees, unbailing them and setting them into stands.

Her preparation for the sale, which opens Friday, started back in February. O'Connell is nearly blind from macular degeneration, has lung and liver cancer and, earlier this year, had to have her stomach removed to keep stomach cancer from spreading. But for months the 73-year-old crafter and seamstress worked "diligently every day" on ornaments and decorations for Spruill's 17th annual art sale, her daughter-in-law Maria O'Connell said. "It's really the thing that's kept her going," she said. "Any time she'd be up and awake, she'd have something in her hands. She'd sit and work, work…
