Free Christmas trees in Appleton
Appleton — An Appleton family is continuing a tradition started several years ago by offering Christmas trees to those in need.
Jeff and Cathy Cleaveland, owners of Appleton Basket Company, own about 55 acres just across the town line in Liberty.
Families who may not be able to afford a tree have the opportunity to choose one from the Cleaveland's property.
The trees are not farmed Christmas trees, the family said, but are perfect for someone who needs one.
Anyone in the Appleton area needing a tree can call 845-2067 and the Cleavelands will help them pick out and cut a tree.
