REDDING, Calif. - It is not too late to order and pick up a Christmas Tree from Shasta College’s Annual Christmas tree sale. Trees are purchased online and tree pick up appointments are then scheduled.
Peter Griggs, a spokesperson for the College, said pick up times are all taken for Saturday, Nov. 28, 2020. He said on Saturday morning that people who want to buy trees should order them on Saturday and get an appointment to pick them up on Sunday before they are all gone. Some varieties of Christmas trees have already sold out.
As guests drive through the farm an animal safari of baby goats and other farm animals will be on display. Children will be given a gift bag with a special craft inside and individually wrapped sugar cookies. Santa will be on-site to greet guests and provide a festive atmosphere.
The pick up appointments are 20-minutes long at the Shasta College Farm. A maximum of two guests from each vehicle will make the final tree selection with help from one of the students. Trees will be trimmed and wrapped if requested, and then will be loaded into the customer's vehicle.
Students had built up an inventory of trees including Douglas Firs, Noble Firs, Silver Tips, Grand Firs and Nordmann Firs.
