Silvertip trees set to arrive at Larchmont Rotary tree lot

VISUALLY IMPAIRED students from Van Ness Elementary enjoy the sled in the Wilshire Rotary Club tree lot.

The sweet smell of pine takes over the Wilshire Rotary Club tree lot at 568 N. Larchmont Blvd. this month. This year, the Rotary has acquired the hard-to-get and highly sought-after silvertip fir. The silvertips come from a higher elevation in Oregon. Their needles are blue-green while new growth is silvery. The tree lot also sells the popular Douglas and noble firs, garlands and wreaths. It’s open every day from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. through Fri., Dec. 23.

Buying a tree here fills your house with holiday spirit and supports local organizations. Van Ness Elementary School is one of the local groups the Rotary supports with proceeds from the sale of their trees. So go out and get your holiday cheer on!

Every year, the Rotary invites the visually impaired children from Van Ness Elementary to wander around the lot. According to Wendy Clifford, a Rotarian in charge of the lot, “The students love the feeling and smell of the trees.” Clifford also said that the teachers look forward to these visits every year. The students also walk over to visit the pumpkins in October.
