The sale begins promptly at 9:00am.

The dates of the sale are:

In recent years the sale has grown into a community event with numerous volunteers of all ages, including church members, representatives of local charities and students from Greenwich’s public and private schools.

All the trees are cut in New Hampshire on “Black Friday” and arrive in Old Greenwich the next morning for unloading at 8:00am, insuring maximum freshness.

All net proceeds from the sale of 500 fresh- cut New Hampshire Fraser Fir and Balsam Fir trees, along with 150 decorated and undecorated wreaths, will benefit local charities:

Kids in Crisis
