The deadline to purchase your Christmas trees and wreaths from Montlake Elementary PTA is this Thursday, November 30! Make sure to get your order in on time; items must be pre-ordered.
Montlake Elementary PTA has a great way to help you support your local community while decorating for Christmas. Purchase your Christmas Trees, Wreaths, Door Swag, and Garlands from Montlake Elementary. All proceeds go to support student teaching and activities at Montlake Elementary.
Also, did you know there is a regional shortage of Christmas trees this year? Around the time of the Great Recession, growers had an oversupply of trees after planting too many in the early 2000’s. Subsequent low prices forced many farmers out of the Christmas tree business, leaving other growers to tend to the market.
Northwest farms harvest the most trees in the United States, exporting them to places like Asia and California. But now, with only so many trees to go around, remaining farmers can’t keep up with demand — and they might not catch up for years. It can take nine years before some trees are ready to be cut and sold.
Although many people will see tree prices increase significantly this year (~10%), we have managed to keep most of our trees at the same low prices as last year. Only our popular Nobles have increased $2 to $3 over last year’s price. In addition, all of our lovely wreaths, door swag, and garlands are being offered at the same low prices as last year.
So don’t delay and secure your Christmas tree and greenery today by going to http://montlakepta.org/evergreens. Orders must be in by November 30 at 3 pm and the pick up day is on December 9 from 10am to 12pm. All trees and greenery are pre-sold.
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to email Matt Wenger or Fran Wall at firstname.lastname@example.org.
