Indiana County, PA is noted as the Christmas Tree Capital of the World, partly because the Christmas Tree Growers Association was founded there. In 1918, Christmas Trees were grown as a "crop" and by 1956, 700,000 trees were cut annually. Currently, other locales may produce more trees but Indiana County still claims the title.
As a beagle man, this is a wonderful thing. Most farms still hold plenty of rabbits although some farms cut everything in between and leave nothing for the bunnies. I am lucky enough to have permission to run on one of the largest growers of blue spruce in the area.
We have been hot and dry so running is limited to early morning. I've been getting out around daybreak and by 8 AM, its already too hot and the dew has disappeared. According to the weather reports, things are about to change and for me, its not soon enough!
