It will begin to look a lot like Christmas when the Wilshire Rotary Club opens its tree lot on Fri., Nov. 25 at 568 N. Larchmont Blvd.
Customers will find Noble, Fraser, Silvertip, Nordmann and Douglas firs, according to organizer Wendy Clifford, who says the trees are delivered fresh from a farm in Oregon.
“The trees are cut and loaded onto trucks on a Tuesday and are available on our lot by Friday,” she explains.
New tree shipments arrive each week, with wreaths and garlands also available.
Last year, Clifford noticed that silvertip trees were the most popular with customers, so this season she’s ordered twice the amount. “There will be a silvertip for everyone who wants one,” she says with a laugh.
Celebrating its 10th year on Larchmont Blvd., Clifford says she appreciates how the community has embraced the Rotary lot: “the annual event is a success because of the amazing support we receive from the local community.”
Proceeds from sales will benefit Wilshire Rotary Foundation in support of local community service projects. In previous years, funds have supported Operation School Bell (a service of the Assistance League of Los Angeles), Hope-Net and the Hollywood YMCA.
The tree lot will be open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. until Fri., Dec. 23. Delivery is available for a fee. Visit, wilshirerotary.org.
