The holidays are soon approaching and for many the hunt for a Christmas tree begins after Thanksgiving.

James Robinson is a farm manager at Danville Farms in Kilgore. He gives a few tips on how to pick the perfect tree.

1. Pick a tree that will fit in your house. Make sure the tree is short enough to comfortably fit in your house.
2. Make sure the trunk is straight. Your tree will need to fit in a stand.
3. Look for a upside down ice cream cone shape. Trees are manicured to fit that shape.
4. Check the quality of the tree. Healthy trees last longer in your home.
