Does it hurt a Christmas Tree when you cut it down?
That's what Doug, the little tree, wants to know when he finds out he's being raised on a Tree Farm and his biggest job is to be cut down and decorated by some family.
"CUT DOWN!" Doug tried to pull his roots out of the ground, he had never felt so stuck before.
But he discoveres it's not that scary and he even enjoys the big surprise.
