PORTLAND, Ore. - Picking out a Christmas tree can be a lot of fun or just one huge headache - it all depends on how much you plan. So what is the best option?  We take a look at a few:

Head To The Hardware Store

At hardware stores like Home Depot, they weed out all of the ugly trees so you can get in and get out fast.  Home Depot will even wrap up your tree and tie it onto your vehicle at no extra charge.  Prices range from $20 to $50.

Don't Pass Up The Small Guys

At Uncle Paul's Produce Market, located at 2310 S.E. Hawthorne Street, a tree will cost you between $30 and $50.  The market's owner, Paul Widerburg, will even deliver the tree to your home for free.

Get A Tree Cutting Permit

Make a family trip out of the tree hunting experience by heading out in the woods to cut your own.  Permits are fairly cheap.
