Neal Harvey of Davis left his job as a commercial fisherman in the 1980s. First he sold nets and trawls, but business declined; then he sold crab pots, but that declined as well. Again he searched for a way to generate income. Material used in crab pot making proved to be the inspiration for his next venture-the Core Sound Christmas tree. The tree is made from green mesh, comes with the lights installed, and is usable both indoors and out. At the end of the season, the tree folds up for storage. The popular tree is sold from Long Island down to Florida.
