They're the Christmas trees that reinvented the life of a Mallee family.
After years of drought and the death of her husband, Shona Traeger pulled out her family's dried fruit vineyard and planted pine trees in the horticultural heartland of north-west Victoria.
It's now harvest time for the family's first plantation of trees.
"After the drought, I was quite hungry, I think we were all quite hungry, for the feeling of some sort of colour," Ms Traeger said.
