Directed by David Winning, ‘You, Me & The Christmas Trees’ is a romantic drama film by Hallmark that follows Olivia, a Connecticut-based arborist and an expert on the region’s evergreen trees. She is unwilling to head home for the holidays since she called off her Christmas wedding just a few months ago. Luckily, she gets a perfect excuse to avoid the family gathering when a Christmas tree farmer named Jack asks for her assistance to figure out the strange disease killing his trees and putting his 100-year-old family business in jeopardy.
As Olivia works alongside Jack, she spends time with his family and gets involved in holiday festivities around town. Working on the farm brings the two closer, and they fall for each other. The romantic love story seems to have been filmed in locations that give viewers an insight into the life of a Christmas tree farmer while also giving us a feel of the festive season.
