Trees Shortly After Being Delivered

CJPVFD has been raising funds by providing the community with Christmas trees for over 30 years. Our Tree lot is all volunteer staffed (yes the same volunteers that answer your 911 calls) so monies received go directly to assist CJPVFD to defray the costs of running our nationally recognized fire and rescue services.

Our trees and wreaths come from a family run tree farm, Eliot’s Tree Farm, in  Pennsylvania. All trees are Douglas Fir, freshly cut and delivered the last weekend in November for freshness. The trees range in size from 5 feet to over 14 feet  so may meet the various needs of our customers. We also offer plain wreaths, pine roping and this year, decorative wreaths. We recommend a donation in exchange for the trees based on the height (by the foot) and can offer delivery on a case by case basis. We wrap, trim and fresh cut each tree to your specifications and have a “tried and true recipe” to keep your tree fresh and safe throughout the Holiday season. We prefer a Credit Card but will accept cash and checks as well. In order to keep costs down and if you wish to pre-order your tree, all you have to do is call.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us in the past, we appreciate your donations and look forward to seeing you next year. Keep an eye on our website for next year’s opening date.
