Noble, Fir, and Grand from 2 - 8 feet tall. "Grand" trees are similar to the Douglas Fir but the branches are denser and drape in a nice bell shape. It has a stronger smell, doesn't dry out as fast, and the needles are longer and shiny. It's a beautiful tree.
Each tree is tagged with the price and information about the tree. Trees start at $20 for a smaller tree, and 6-7 foot trees run about $45 (These are 2010 prices, I'll publish and update next time I visit).

  1. We are going to venture out on Friday to find our tree. Usually we end up at Home Depot. I remember going into LA and getting it at the auction right off the train when I was little. The trees still had ice on them! I took my 4 year old when she was a baby, but they do not do it anymore =(

    Did you make it to the parade last weekend? We went at the last minute. We found a little spot, threw our blanket down and sat in the street. The girls had a good time.
