A Message From The Chairman Of The Christmas Tree Sale

Season’s greetings! 

I know - it’s a little early to start thinking about Christmas, but the Rotary Club of South Portland - Cape Elizabeth is already making preparations for this year’s Christmas Tree Sale. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in response to feedback from you, our loyal customers, we’re making a few updates to how the Christmas Tree sale is going to work!

For the past fifty nine years, families (just like yours) have looked forward to coming to the tree lot in Mill Creek Park and choosing the perfect Christmas tree. I want to assure you that you will still be able to do this, if it’s what you feel comfortable doing in light of the COVID-19 situation. We’re updating our lot layout and our processes to ensure that everyone, both our customers and the club members working with you, are able to enjoy that traditional experience in a safe, socially-distanced manner. 

New for 2020 - We’ve brought the Christmas tree lot online! (Seeing as you’re reading this on the site - you figured this out!) This means that you’re now able to buy you Christmas tree (the same beautiful Balsam Firs that we’ve been selling for over FIVE DECADES) in a few simple clicks through this website. You can even add a handmade wreath, tree stand, or other tree-related items, and then select either curbside pickup - scheduled for when it works for you! Please note that this year we’re credit/debit card-only. 

If getting a photo of your family with your chosen tree is a tradition - don’t worry! We’ll have a special area for taking Instagram-worthy pictures in a safe and socially-distant way! 

Remember - 100% of the profits from the tree sale support charitable programs. By getting your tree from the Rotary Club of South Portland - Cape Elizabeth, you’re helping us help our community.
