How to get free christmas tree


Testimonials – The Christmas Tree Project

See what the people we’ve helped have to say

“Chris from Tough Tool Rental said, "I had someone call me today and say she just needed a small tree because her little girl didn't think Santa would come if a tree wasn't in the house."”

“There was a young couple with five children and another on the way (due Christmas day!) who needed a tree and ended up with a wonderful nine-and-half-foot tree. They said their children would just not believe they had such a magnificent tree. By the looks on their faces and the bounce in their stride, I don't think they would have been happier if they had won the lottery.”

“Paula Dosen, a local physician saw the Gazette article and called asking to help. She headed the tree pickup team and spent days driving from one end of town to the other picking up and delivering over 25 trees. Her efforts were clearly a mission of caring that went way beyond simple logistics.

“An elderly woman just returning from the hospital called to make sure someone could pick up her tree because she wanted to make sure it was part of the "Christmas Tree Project." The tree was fully decorated and was one of the most beautiful that was donated. That tree ended up being the answer to a grandmother's prayer.”

“The injured solider who (we couldn't help but notice) had a Purple Heart license plate, was happy to get a tree for his family. He was the only person we did not give a pre-addressed card to so he could write a note of thanks to all the people who worked on the Christmas Tree Project It seemed so obvious that we all owed him and his family infinitely more than they owed us.”

“There was a single mother living with her young son in a motel. She contacted us and wanted a "small" tree that would fit in the motel to brighten up their Christmas. (One of our delivery "Elfs" made sure her son had the skateboard he so much wanted for Christmas. )”

“There was a wonderful woman from the West Coast who was recently relocated with her children because she was a victim of extreme domestic violence. She had a new job, a new house, and nothing for Christmas for her young children. She was so grateful to have a tree and decorations. When we asked her if she wanted some wrapping paper, she started to say "yes" but when she realized she wouldn't have any presents to wrap, she declined, saying just having a tree would be good enough.”

Free Christmas Trees Programs - Free Financial Help Services

Free Christmas tree programs in 2020.   Christmas trees are really very expensive and $30 or 40 is a lot to pay for something you will throw in the trash in a few days.  Do a search for free Christmas trees near me and you will be surprised to know, there are programs donating to low-income families and veterans.   I found an interesting way to get free or discount trees is to wait until the evening before Christmas.

If found this out years ago when I waiting until the last minute to get a tree.  When I went shopping, the man at the tree lot was backing up are ready to call it a day.  I found a tree and asked him how much,  he said, “take it.  It’s free.  If you don’t want to wait until Christmas Eve to get a tree, keep reading.
