I was out cutting some sagebrush for an order yesterday when I came upon an idea.

I will add some pictures of these trees for you to evaluate yourself for look. If you are interested in ordering some of these new style of trees as an option let me know and I’ll make sure to get you a good group of them.
I also have some resources for you to look at for how to preserve them:
