Christmas Tree 2008 Part 4

Once I finished cutting through the tree trunk. I discovered something very disturbing about my dream tree. See below:

Right next to this "perfect tree" that I thought I had found had grown an unseen smaller Chistmas tree whose pine needles and branches made up about 40% of the green, fullness on one side of my perfect tree.
Of course, from the side where I started cutting the trunk I could not tell that there was another smaller trunk next to my "perfect" tree.
Once the cut tree was moved to the side, I was astonished and astounded at the same time to see that 40% of my tree was not there.
Good for us that where were were planning on placing the tree in our home, you can only see the good side of the tree ;-)
