Christmas Tree Sales

December 4, 2015

The holiday season is approaching quickly, and the Four Frozen Farmers are gearing up for their annual Christmas tree sale at Construction Junction! Soon they’ll be where you've always found them… by the campfire in the CJ’s parking lot, surrounded by hundreds of beautiful, locally grown Christmas trees and wreaths made fresh on site.

Trees will be on sale one weekend only, from Friday through Sunday, Dec. 4-6, from 9am to 7pm. Please come early, since they’ll sell out by the end of the weekend!  You can expect the usual variety of high quality, freshly cut, soft-needled firs in an assortment of sizes (3' to 9'), along with 18-24” wreaths. Cash only when CJ is closed, or you can pay with cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover) or cash while we're open.

Four Frozen Farmers sources their trees locally from Indiana, PA -- the “Christmas Tree Capital of the World.” The majority of the trees available will be Fraser and Canaan firs, which smell great and hold on to their needles through the holiday season. The trees are cut and delivered to the lot shortly before the sale. The Farmers will happily give your tree a fresh cut and share their knot tying skills to help secure your tree to the top of your car. Come join the Four Frozen Farmers for this festive holiday tradition, back by the docks at Construction Junction!
