Christmas tree lots open in Tucson - Tucson News Now

Christmas tree lots open in Tucson

By Suleika Acosta - email

Move over pumpkins, there's a new holiday must-have in town: Christmas trees.  

This weekend, several Tucsonans are heading out to find the perfect tree.

Mast-Roth Farms is one of a few fresh tree lots that set up shop.

Christmas is 25 days away and some families are getting a head start on picking the perfect tree. The Mast-Roth Farms tree lot hopes to sell 2,0000 trees this holiday season.

These were grown in Oregon then brought to Tucson just two days ago.

Tree lot workers tell us it's never a good idea to wait until the last minute to buy a fresh tree. Getting them early will guarantee they will last through the holidays.

"It's kind of about finding the perfect one, when you walk in, it's like the perfect dress or perfect pair of shoes, you know it's the one," says Cheryl Osburn.  

Tree experts say once you take the tree off the lot, be sure to keep it in water and away from heat to avoid a fire.

Trees range from $15 - $90.
