🙂 Hello...just wondering if there are Christmas trees for sale on STX? or will I be running to K-mart for an artificial?

GBH - Gallows Bay Hardware sell "LIVE" trees, but they go quickly! I think they take deposits to ensure you get yours.
Good luck on you quest for the perfect Christmas tree!

Expect to pay WAY too much. I entertained the idea until the told me over $100 for a tree.

I took a palm tree and strung lights all over it. Did the trick

Make a traditional VI Christmas tree out of agave. Just make sure they don't have bugs.

Cost-U-Less will have trees, probably Plaza, maybe Pueblo? You will find options, not a problem. CUL always has a big bin of wreaths, too. They smell so good, but they don't last long. Lots of cleaning up fallen needles.

We got ours at Gallows Bay last year and it was a really good tree. Oddly, it was a lot fresher than the trees we used to get in NJ. It didn't drop needles like crazy, was well rounded & filled out and smelled great. It's true, they are very expensive, but we enjoyed it greatly last year. KJ

we always get a huge tree - it's one of our gifts to ourselves. they are really expensive, though. i remember one year we got a 12 foot one...that was insane! lol, we just love the smell of the tree, though, and won't do the artificial. We get ours at Gallows Bay Hardware, but i did know some who got from Cost U Less. The Cost U Less one (at least the one they got) was really bare.

I happen to love a Charie Brown Christmas tree, so for a couple of years, I had a Norfolk Island Pine that I just moved indoors on Thanksgiving Day and back out on Jan. 2. It died this past summer.:-(. So, a couple of days ago, I bought another at Gallows Bay. Hope it lasts longer than the last one. (The man that did our yard said I kept it in the pot too long, should have planted it. I don't know why he didn't tell me that before it died!)
