    There are a lot of traditions when it comes to Christmas and the holidays and a tradition that dates back to the 1950s is Christmas trees at Hensler Nursery. Kelly makes the trip to Hensler to get her Christmas tree and John Hensler helps her pick just the right one as he also shares his family's story. The over 300 acres is home to more than just trees as most years you can browse through their gift shop, see a variety of animal, visit with Mr.and Mrs. Claus, and finds some wonderful treats to eat. Oh...and you can either select a pre-cut tree or cut one yourself.
