HOLIDAY TREE SALE DELAYED. Due to a storm in the Sierras, the sale will start on TUESDAY, Dec. 10. Check back here for updates.

Short of cutting your own, you can’t get holiday trees fresher than the white fir, incense cedar and other evergreens that Cal Forestry Club students will offer for sale starting on TUESDAY.

Equipped with chainsaws and fundraising spirit, the students will make their annual trek up to the Sierra foothills to harvest the trees.

The sweet-smelling conifers, along with decorated wreaths and pine cones, will be on sale TUESDAY through SATURDAY OR SUNDAY, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., on the south side of Mulford Hall, home of the College of Natural Resources. Mulford is near the campus’s West Gate, just north of West Circle.

Trees will sell for $6 a foot. The sale is the club’s annual fundraiser. The trees are cut on property owned by Sierra Pacific Industries, the lumber company based in Shasta County.
