Cowichan fir Christmas trees for sale

Preschool sells fresh-cut Douglas fir Christmas trees from Cowichan Valley

There’ll be no trekking out to the woods to chop down a Christmas tree for Oak Bay residents this year. Local families can get their tree from the Oak Bay Parent-Owned Preschool.

“You can pick up a tree behind the preschool at the church on Elgin,” said parent Kate Embacher. “They are beautiful Cowichan Valley trees cut the day before they are delivered.”

Trees must be pre-ordered at www.obpop2011.blogspot.com by Nov. 30, and can be picked up Saturday, Dec. 10 from 8 a.m. to noon at St. Mary’s Church, 1701 Elgin Rd. The sale is an annual tradition that raises funds for the preschool. The Cowichan Valley-grown Douglas firs stand five- to seven-and-a-half feet tall and are $32 each.

“It’s great for Oak Bay families because you don’t have to go too far to get a tree,” Embacher said.
