Tree shopping: Metadata problems

Originally uploaded by martin_kalfatovic
Bought our tree at the Optimists Club stand again this year. Metadata on the trees was confusing. There were different color tags for each type of tree and price. But the colored tags overlapped; thus, yellow could be a Spruce or a Scotch pine, each at a different price. You were still obligated to be able to identify the tree type, even with the tag.

This was a challenge both for us and for the Optimists. So, this was a yellow tag, might be a Norwegian Spruce. Might not.

Any tree people out there can help?
