trees-for-salecropOur annual Christmas Tree lot opened on Friday, November 24, the day after Thanksgiving. Once again beautiful Noble Fir trees will be delivered fresh from Oregon weekly. Wreaths and other holiday decorations are available, too.

Located on the Stanford Campus on the corner of Embarcadero and El Camino Real, across from Palo Alto High School, the Kiwanis lot will be open daily until Christmas.

Christmas Tree shopping hours are:
Daily 2:00PM – 8:00PM
Weekends 9:00AM – 8:00PM

The Kiwanis Christmas Tree lot is a long-standing tradition, having started as a fundraiser for the Club more than 40 years ago. Today, it’s a main source of funding for the Club’s many charitable contributions to community organizations.
