Celebrate the season and help a local Boy Scout troop by purchasing a Christmas tree from North Central’s Troop 41.

The troop is selling trees through its 72nd Annual Christmas Tree Sale at 1104 E. Northern Ave. The tree lot is open from 5 to 9 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The lot offers fresh-cut Douglas trees that were taken from a small farm in Oregon. Holiday wreaths also will be available.

The Scouts started preparing for the tree sales in October by cleaning and clearing the lot where they are set up, which will be open until Christmas Eve. The troop recommends that people come early to buy a tree as the trees sell out quickly. Money from the tree sales will help fund camping trips, obtain supplies and support other yearly adventures. Participating in the tree sale project helps Boy Scouts learn the principles of Boy Scout law while serving the community and developing leadership skills.
