Satisfaction Guaranteed

We continually select sizes, shapes and types of trees you have preferred. We like to emphasize our trees will be cut just days before they are delivered to the lot. This assures your tree will last longer in your home.

If you are not satisfied with your tree, do not hesitate to notify us and we will do our best to “make it right”.

Wreaths, Garlands, and Swags

The wreaths are available “PLAIN”, decorated “FANCY” or in stunningly, eye catching “DELUXE” fashion.  Garlands are always popular and sell out quickly.  Wreaths with lights have been popular.  Usually, each decorated wreath is different from the others.  If you would like an identical pair, please allow approximately 3 days for a special order.

Staying Safe

We want everyone to have a safe, coronavirus-free experience.  As most of the activity takes place outdoors, this will provide some level of safety. We encourage any customer who feels it necessary to take extra precautions to feel free to do so.  Inside the church building social distancing will be observed and the wearing of masks is encouraged.  Cashiers will be behind a plexiglas barrier.  Bathroom fixtures and door push plates will be sanitized several times daily.  The popular “treasure chest” will be filled with gift bags and activity packets for the children to select.


A Special Note From Earl

Over 23,000 trees!  Thousands of decorated wreaths!  Not to mention many aching muscles and calloused fingers. In 1990 (our first year), it would have been hard for me to believe that I would still be selling Christmas trees for Church of the Incarnation in 2021.

My tree-selling “career” actually began in 1975, when I sold Christmas trees for a YMCA. A member of the Y-Men’s Club, Dave Wilson (a District 54 science teacher), grew the trees that were sold at the YMCA. Dave has been the supplier of trees for Church of the Incarnation since 1992.

There was a nationwide shortage of Christmas trees in 2020.  Some of you who receive this notice were not able to purchase a tree from our lot last year as we sold out of trees in less than two weeks. Demand was high in 2020, but we didn’t receive the full number of trees we had ordered. Dave said that a cardinal rule in the Christmas tree business is, “Don’t sell next year’s trees this year.” That is, don’t harvest trees that aren’t ready to be harvested. We will have more trees available this year, but we will still sell out, unless the weather is extremely uncooperative.

After five or more years of steady pricing, there will be price increases this year to offset rising costs of transportation, labor, and supplies.

One thing that won’t change in 2021 is our dedication to customer satisfaction, which we achieve by selling high quality, freshly-cut trees with friendly, knowledgeable customer service.
