Reader Input: Tree farmer exhibits grace

-A +A

Thanks to Robert Hane of Pine Valley Tree Farm for embodying the spirit of Auburn Christmas.
Due to a busy week, we started to search for a tree last weekend, only to find that they were gone!
I heard of Pine Valley through a neighbor and drove through the driving rain to the Hanes’ farm. He was gracious to walk through the mud, open the gate and help us find a tree because he did not want people to go without that evergreen Christmas symbol.
I will be back there — earlier next year!
