Cutting a Christmas tree down doesn’t kill it. The tree is actually a troll who lives underground and puts up this hair piece that looks like a green pointy shape. You cut it and the tree troll grows a new hair piece. For real. Okay, most people don’t know it’s a tree troll but the tree is underground and cutting the part on top doesn’t kill it. Our family has harvested the same Christmas tree repeatedly from the same stump about every five years. They just keep growing back.
