WTF is an Enid, Oklahoma? I must be completely ignorant, because they have a football coach.

My apologies for not educating myself better about the beautiful city of Enid, Oklahoma. Pretty sure I'm the sixth person to click on that wiki that wasn't editing it.

But hey, if'n yawl wants ta make a giant Christmas tree out of like 400 smaller ones, more power to you. I'm sure the trees were donated and all of the workers were volunteers.

Oh shiat, how can we wage the War On Christmas with this fortress in front of us?!?! We're doomed!

What kind of reception will it get? Probably terrible. The cell tower, too.

Interestingly enough, between Enid and Woodward, there are quite a few mesas and hoodoos. It's a really lovely area

Using a lodgepole pine for a Christmas tree is a choice, an interesting choice to be sure, but it was a choice.

The one at the White House is coming from my county this year. An 85ft white fir.

Isn't there a LOT of wind in OK?  Maybe they're planning on digging a hole deep enough so that it both won't blow over and also look more or less like a normal Christmas tree.
 
2021-10-15 11:02:01 AM  
I would vote for anyone who ran on a platform of passing a federal law against Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving.

This tree is now top 10 of tallest trees in Oklahoma, and the only one on that list not in the southeast corner.

Also, Enid is famous statewide for its Hillbilly-entitlement. And being stuck in 1985. They cruise the streets on a Saturday night like gas was still 39¢ a gallon.

What the hell did the big pine trees ever do to you?

Stop farking with the pretty trees, you weirdos.

Wow, that's pretty horrible for a Christmas tree.
 
2021-10-15 11:05:05 AM  
What the hell? Imagine the cost and pain in the ass that was on the highways? Then the damn thing has height but no branches. It's the shortbus of Xmas trees just like OK is to states.

It was going to be harvested anyways and is going to be turned into boards for habitat for humanity, nothing is being harmed by this other than a little bit of extra pollution for carrying the tree whole instead of as boards.

I was mugged in an alley in the middle of the day in Enid. It's a delightful place.

In Christmas tree terms, roughly 2/3 of that looks like a utility pole.

Today I learned you can sell dead ugly ass trees to a bunch of okies. Not like they know what a nice one looks like anyhow....And that's a 50 foot tree with 70 feet of stem.....

OK then, that was always allowed.

A farking lot, Not to mention some sign engineer is saying to himself , I got to put A 20X20 X 4 foot deep of concrete to hold up a 100 foot speedway sign next to the highway.

Enid, Oklahoma rivals my hometown of Ames, Iowa as one of the greatest emergency 4-letter crossword puzzle words on the planet.

I've been lobbying to get the city council to adopt my "Ames, we're not just a 4-letter New York Times crossword puzzle solution anymore!" slogan for years.

Sooners. Only time I ever saw my gran angry- and I mean little ole 4'11" pixie became a towering Valkyrie of rage- was when the word 'Okie' was mentioned.

Apparently, the hate was real and when the family moved to KS, she experienced that word as a legit slur against them.

I once almost apologized to her spirit when I had to fill it in as the answer to a crossword clue.

Lived in Enid for about 10 months while teaching, was the longest 10 months of my life.  Town was okay back then just small.  Once the college I was working for closed the town accelerated on its downward trajectory from what I can tell.

/Yes I do live in OK but in a big college town which has a lot to offer.

Nothing says Christmas like a tree where the lowest branches are 70 feet off the ground.

Oh that's hilarious.We saw it on the semi trailer last Friday in the NHP inspection lot outside Reno just inside the Nevada border, likely waiting for their trip permit. Wasn't sure what I'd actually seen, but it was still there on our way back up the hill. We couldn't figure out why the hell they had a whole tree on a trailer typically used to move wind turbine blades, but now we know.

Look, they got word antifas and BLms and the communist demonrat party are planning an early surprise attack in the war on Christmas this year.

They're trying to be prepared early.

Recoil Therapy: Isn't there a LOT of wind in OK?  Maybe they're planning on digging a hole deep enough so that it both won't blow over and also look more or less like a normal Christmas tree.


The general rule for power poles is 10% plus 2 feet underground, so a 35 foot pole would be a little under 6 feet.  For this, 16 feet in the ground reducing the size to 124. I'd personally convert the bottom 2/3 to lumber. This one looks like the procrastinator's special.
 
2021-10-15 1:03:55 PM  
So my sister in Enid says that there are a bunch of branches under the tree right now, so it looks like they're going to be filling it in. They also do that with the Rockefeller trees, so it will probably look better once they've done some more work on it.
 
2021-10-15 1:07:36 PM  
As long as that tree loves America, Jesus, and Donald Trump and speaks English and hates racial minorities, Nonchristians, and anyone LGBTQ, it'll be the most loved little tree in all of Oklahoma
 
2021-10-15 1:10:51 PM  
They do this across the street at South Coast Plaza in Orange County every year. The Segerstroms kill a grand  tree that's been alive hundreds of years, strip all the branches, then reassemble them onsite.

This costs about $25,000.00 that could go to people in need, just for the vanity of putting something up that very few people will cross the street to see. They have tree envy and compete with the Spectrum mall a few miles south. It always made me kind of sick to see it out of my (ex) office window in the Deloitte building.

Three Christmases ago it went up in flames due to a faulty light. I laughed my tail feathers off.

Greedy wasteful bastards....

No, they chop down a magnificent tree and reassemble it onsite. It's wasteful and disgusting.
