Christine and Christopher Powers of Griswold work together to pull the cart carrying their Christmas tree as they walk along a path after cutting the tree down Saturday, Dec. 8, 2018, at the Hartikka Tree Farm in Voluntown. The couple said the tree is about 16 or 17 feet tall and Christopher said, 'Don't know what we were thinking,' although they have had trees in the past that were close to the same size. Saturday evening they planned to have 20 friends to their home to help decorate the tree.  (Dana Jensen/The Day)
