We supply everything you'll need, from the saw to the tie down string. And if you want, we can even cut it down for you so you won't have to lift a finger. When you're done, or while you're waiting, hop on the back of the tractor for a holiday hayride or sit back and relax in our heated Country Store while sipping hot apple cider and eating delicious holiday cookies," according to its website.
