Christmas trees can be made of all sorts of things. We've see those poinsettia trees made from multi-levels of red poinsettia flower pots.

We've also seen the giant lobster trap tree, specifically the famous one in Connecticut.

However, there's a new twist to the Christmas tree game, and it comes from Holmberg Orchards & Winery in Gales Ferry, Connecticut.

What is it about Connecticut?  That state has not only the lobster trap tree, and the Saxophone Santa, but also the wooden apple box tree.

The orchard has made a giant Christmas tree from 50 year old wooden apple boxes, still in use today during the apple season.

The Holmberg Orchard & Winery says on its Facebook page:

The tree is about fifteen feet across and sixteen feet tall. And yes, you can go inside! It is open during our business hours: 9-6 daily. Of course, dusk or dark is when it really shines: 4:30-6:00 is best!

Check out the big old wooden bushel basket made into a shining light inside the tree.  The multi-colored lights shine through the boxes and into the inside of the tree.  There's even a door to enter, but does it smell like apples?  That would be a wonderful holiday fragrance to add to the pine tree scent so familiar this time of year.

Connecticut is the perfect road trip to see your favorite holiday attractions, like this wooden tree.  Happy holidays.
