What Is Hallmark’s You, Me And The Christmas Tree About?
According to the Hallmark synopsis, Olivia (McKellar) is Connecticut’s resident expert on Evergreens. Jack (Ayres) calls her days before Christmas to ask for her assistance. Jack is a Christmas tree grower and needs her expertise to solve the mystery illness that has caused their trees to die. Moreover, this is ruining their business, which has been his family’s legacy for 100 years.
After calling off her Christmas wedding six months earlier, Olivia isn’t eager to head home for the holidays. Therefore, she agrees to make a detour and stop at Jack’s farm in Avon to examine the trees.
Olivia, who is unable to find the source of the problem immediately, extends her stay in order to conduct advanced testing. While she waits for tree test results, Olivia goes along with Jack to the holiday celebrations in town.
Olivia finds the traditions an interesting change from the traditional holidays she grew to love. They begin to fall in love as they spend more time together. Jack helps Olivia connect to her parents, Christmas, and herself.
Her perseverance pays off in the end. Best of all, Olivia not only devises a way to preserve Jack’s trees but she discovers the shocking truth about why his firs were fizzling – much to the dismay of Dwayne (Hervey), a rival local tree farmer.
