The Trees Are On Their Way! Belmont Lions Club Returns With 66th Annual XMas Tree & Wreath Sale

While the day after Thanksgiving is known as “Black Friday,” many residents in Belmont view the day as “Green Friday” as the first load of Christmas trees arrives at the World War I Memorial for the Belmont Lions Club’s 66th annual Tree & Wreath Sale.

Student-athletes from Belmont High School will be at the Memorial delta on Friday, Nov. 24, to unload the trees that have traveled from a farm in Nova Scotia that has been supplying the sale since 1957. Until Christmas Eve, Lions Club members and volunteers will help residents select their favorite evergreens, stack them onto cars and SUVs, or wrap them up for the hardy souls carrying them home.

Tree sale hours are:

  • Nov. 24: The sale opens at 2 p.m.
  • Monday to Friday: Noon to 8 p.m.
  • Saturday and Sunday: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m

Parking on Common Street adjacent to the Lions Club will be blocked off for the month the sale occurs.

While the cost of trees has risen by 10 percent since 2022, the Lions Club’s board has kept the same prices as last year.

A majority of the money raised will go to eye research, which is the central national charity of the Lions Club, while a tip jar will benefit local causes.

One word of advice: Don’t wait! The sale usually sees the last tree leave the delta a week before Christmas.
