The holidays are around the corner, and if you want to get a Christmas tree (or other tree for your holiday) there are a few local options I've heard about. If you know others, post them in the comments!
Two local schools are selling trees as a fundraiser: Bancroft Elementary in Mt. Pleasant and West Education Campus in 16th Street Heights (at 14th and Farragut.) Bancroft is selling trees this Saturday and are also hosting a holiday celebration, while West is selling trees this weekend at their school. I am not sure the hours for West.
In addition, there's a local company called DC Tree Delivery which does just that -- delivers trees to you.
Here's the details for Bancroft: they're selling trees this Sunday from 10am-4pm at the parking lot of McCormick Paints in Mt. Pleasant, at Kenyon and Mt. Pleasant Street NW, and they're holding a holiday celebration at the same time at the Lamont Park, just up Mt. Pleasant Street. The celebration has some fun events too: a puppet show from 11:30am-noon, Santa from noon to 2pm, and food, cocoa and face painting from 11am-4pm.
And here's more about DC Tree Delivery:
We deliver Premium Fraser Firs to homes, apartments, and businesses within the Beltway, and every tree comes with delivery, a tree stand, and cleanup included. Our customers can choose between a simple tree delivery to their doorstep or the full setup of their tree within their home. Either way, we always vacuum up the needles to help take the hassle out of the holidays. Now in our second year, we are excited to bring some much needed holiday cheer to the area. Our mission is to make enjoying a fresh cut Christmas tree easier than ordering a book from Amazon.Know of any other sales?
