After Christmas Tree Find

Each year, my wife and I do some after Christmas shopping. She is looking for wrapping paper for next year and I am looking for terrain leftovers from stores selling Christmas villages. This was a good year. At Menard's, I found two packages of birch trees at 50% off. I picked up 18 trees for $13. I'm quite pleased. I'll need to add foliage, but that's easy.

  1. Excellent find, Mike. They'll work well for winter scenarios as is, too!

    1. That's funny; the first thing I thought of when I saw these was Eylau. Maybe I'll put foliage on the brown trunks and leave the white ones bare.

    You bought them very cheap. Oh and the trees can easely removed from the base.
