No matter what your style is, you have to agree that there'x nothing like heading out on a winter's day with people you love to chop down a tree. The air is crisp, the thermoses are steaming with aromatic coco.

Say you shop at Filson and have a mega truck. You like to get out into the further reaches of the PNW to fell your favorite piney trophy with a handsaw. Good for you!

Located in Bothell, Donna's is a short jaunt from Seattle. If you're an urban type and don't care for the remote excursion, this may be the best bet for you. Drive up to the lot, pick out your tree and call it a day.
