30th Annual Boy Scout tree lot
It's a busy weekend for all of the Christmas tree shoppers out there and some local boy scouts can help you find the perfect one.
We stopped by the original Grand Junction Boy Scout tree lot and things were looking very busy.
The tree sale is a tradition the troops have kept up for as long as thirty years now.
It's a holiday ritual they plan on continuing for many years to come.
If you're still looking for that perfect Christmas tree and you want to help out our local Boy Scout troops then this is the perfect stop.
The 30th annual troop lot is just off of First Street and Patterson Road.
All the proceeds from tree sales will go toward the troops various activities and community programs.
Boy Scout troop instructor Bryce Moore, says troop 303 loves providing their freshly cut trees to the community.
"The money goes to our troop to go to summer camp, in the past we've gone to Hawaii and Alaska, so this is pretty nice for us," said Moore.
It wasn't hard to see that the troops have been busy as they sold more than 200 trees in the first 24 hours of being open.
The boy scouts are offering three different types of trees including Douglas Fir, Noble, and Grand.
The sizes range from four to twelve feet high.
If you'd like to support our local Boy Scout troops just stop by their lot any time Sunday through Friday from noon to 9 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
