Frasier Firs Arriving Soon!

 

 

Boy Scout Troop #234 has been selling Christmas Trees on Marco Island for the last 16 years! As usual, the trees will arrive the day after Thanksgiving, November 26th, and be ready for purchase under the big tent at the corner of San Marco Road and Bahama.

Each year, 200 frasier fir trees make their way to Marco Island from the Moss Tree Farm in North Carolina. The scouts start loading the tent with trees at 8:00 a.m. the day they arrive and are open 9-8 each weekend and 3:30-7:30 pm Monday-Friday.

Proceeds from the tree sale support their camp-outs. The scouts camp four-six times per year and then hold summer camp as well.

The Scouts would like to thank Ed Walsh and Condee Cooling and Electric, Skip at Sunshine Ace Hardware and the City of Marco Island. One scout leader commented “We have customers that come each and every year. Some drive from Naples just to support our scouts!”
