Wood versus metal: Maine’s lobster trap Christmas trees


Unfortunately, I don’t have a photo of Jonesport Beals’ big kahoona lobster trap tree, but I do have photos of this year’s traditional wooden lobster pot tree in Cape Porpoise and this year’s conventional metal trap tree in Rockland (two views). So, which is prettier, wood or metal?

And for something a bit different, check out Maine photographer Michele Stapleton’s shot of the lobster crate tree in Trenton.
