Christmas Tree Sales
As of 12/15/2022:
Christmas Trees for the 2022 Season are officially sold out, thank you so much to those who came out to support CJPVFD!
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!)
All Money that is received goes 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 12 feet so we can 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.
