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. Days before Christmas she gets a plea for help from Jack (Ayres), He is a Christmas tree farmer in need of her skills to figure out what mystery illness is causing their trees to die out. 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.

Unable to immediately discover the cause, Olivia is determined to get to the root of the problem, This means she extends her stay to run advanced tests. With time to kill, while she waits for test results for the trees, Olivia joins Jack and his friends at the holiday festivities around town.

Olivia finds their traditions a welcome change to the reserved holidays she grew up with. As they spend more time together, they begin to fall for each other. Moreover, Jack helps Olivia reconnect to Christmas, her parents, and herself.

In the end, her tenacity pays off. 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.
