- Saturday, Dec. 11, 2021: Christmas Tree Pick-Up Day (by time slot) at St. Margaret’s of Scotland Anglican Church, 3751 Robie Street, Halifax
Pick-up Day schedule
As the COVID-19 situation in Halifax continues to change, we are adapting our plans for Christmas Tree Pick-Up Day in order to manage the number of people gathering at a time. This year, we're asking everyone who orders a tree to select a pick-up time slot so we can keep everyone safe and spread out. Pick-up time slot options can be found on the order form.
Some of you have been asking if you can order untrimmed, wild trees straight from the woods. You’re in luck! Kevin our tree farmer is offering a small number of these trees for EAC supporters. You can choose this as an option when you order your tree. Please note these trees tend to be less dense, with more open space between branches. While Kevin makes an effort to find the most nicely shaped trees, some of them may be irregular shaped compared to sheared or cultivated trees.
Limited trees available
Due to the pressures of our changing climate (unusual frosts + summer droughts), in addition to the labour shortage related to Covid-19, there is a tight supply of Christmas trees across our region this year. As a result, we may have a limited number of trees available for this year’s fundraiser. Returning buyers may also notice a slight price increase from what they've seen in previous years, which is also a result of these factors. For these reasons, orders will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
Thank you for your support, and thanks for choosing a “green” Christmas!
