North Fork Scout Christmas tree sale begins Saturday

-- North Fork ScoutsNovember 29, 2012 

The North Fork Scout's annual fresh Christmas Tree Sale opens at 9 a.m. Saturday, in the parking lot behind the North Fork Fire Station/Library.

The North Fork Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Brownies, Girl Scouts, Scout leaders and parents have been holding the annual sale for more than 70 years, selling red fir (silver tip) trees in a variety of sizes.

Tree sales will be held 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. on weekends and 3:30 p.m. - 5 p.m. weekdays until the tress sell out.

Scout leader Dave Smith advises Mountain Area residents to visit the lot within the first 10 days of the sale for best selection.

The trees sell for $2.75 a foot, including sales tax.

In preparation for tree sales, Scout members, their families and interested community members helped cut and haul the trees out of the forest to the lot.

Proceeds from the sale of trees are used to help fund all Scouting in North Fork. This year about 60 youth are in the programs.

Members of these troops and their families staff the tree lot during business hours.
