Our Annual Christmas Tree Lot fundraiser is back for its 10th year!
Decorate your home or workplace with a beautiful, sustainably-farmed tree – all while supporting Genesis House and the Museum. We source our SERF (Socially and Environmentally Responsible Farms) certificated and “best quality” trees from Noble Mountain in Oregon, and this year have two shipments of 2-10 feet Noble Firs, 5-10 feet Douglas Firs, and 5-11 feet Nordmann Firs.
Our trees sell at a variety of good value price points that are competitive with local box stores while also providing a great tree-buying experience which is “fun for the whole family”, including:
o fresh, long-lasting, first quality trees which are SERF certified
o a variety of tree stands, tree preservative, and wreaths
o free candy canes for the kids; free evergreen trimmings
o assistance with selection – our folks will bring out and untie trees for viewing until you find “the one”
o trimming and tailoring branches and trunk bottom for the perfect tree stand fit (bring your stand with you)
o assistance with wrangling the tree onto your vehicle or scheduling a home delivery
o letter writing paper for those “dear Santa” letters the kids can do while you stroll the lot
o “Cally”, the carousel camel, who holds court in front of the camel ornamented tree
o free entry Museum passes for tree buyers
o and new this year, a variety of Museum Gift Shop items for sale, including holiday-themed decorations and vintage toys for that perfect present!
