We’ve been selling trees at Christmas for almost seventy years, since 1952! For over forty of those years, our lot has been located at 2813 San Gabriel on the corner of San Gabriel and North Lamar. The lot and the kinds of trees we carry have changed, but all of the profits from our lot still go to youth charities in Austin.
Due to fires and drought in the Pacific Northwest where over two thirds of our trees come from, and increased shipping costs, the price of trees has increased substantially this year.
These trees come from the Pacific Northwest. This is the premium fir tree, with beautiful, soft needles, a conical shape and open branch spacing. Nobles grow less than a foot a year, making them more expensive. We have trees from 2 feet to 12 feet tall!
Our Frasers come from the Smoky Mountains near Banner Elk, NC. These trees are characterized by their dark green upper sides and lovely silver blue undersides. They are wonderfully fragrant and have good needle retention. We have trees from 4 feet to 10 feet tall.
These lovely, citrusy smelling firs come from southern Oregon. Their grown a bit inland from the coast so they are used to dryness and retain their needles well. We have them from 4 feet to 11 feet tall.
This is the only pine we carry, and they come from southern Oregon. They are full, lovely trees. The needles are less soft than fir trees, but they retain their needles well and are a great deal! We have trees from 2 feet to 7 feet tall.
We have Fraser fir wreaths and Noble garland. The garland comes in 75' rolls and we'll sell you a foot or a roll!
