...at Woodburn Premium Outlets


by: JEFF MCDONALD  - Paul Sunderland prepares limbs for attaching to a 75-foot white fir Christmas tree at the Woodburn Premium Outlets.

by: JEFF MCDONALD  - A worker plugs a limb to a 75-foot white fir at Woodburn Premium Outlets. The white fir, grown at a special tree farm in the Mount Lassen wilderness of Northern Calilfornia, was shipped by semitruck to Woodburn last week and will be full with branches in time for Santa’s arrival Nov. 24, Sunderland said.

“The conical shape is what God intended,” Sunderland said. “We just make them a little fuller.”
