Christmas Trees for Sale in Sedalia

One of the big traditions for those celebrating Christmas is putting up the Christmas tree for the season. Although there is the constant debate over having a real or fake tree, we’re going to talk about where to get your real trees in Sedalia.

One of the fondest memories for my wife and I was having a real tree the first few years of our marriage.  We would go out to a tree farm and cut down the tree ourselves and take it home. There appears to not be very many of those left.  Sedalia has one tree stand in the Thompson Hills Shopping Center.

Optimist Club Tree Stand

This tree stand is run by the Sunrise Optimist Club, and they are normally open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. according to President Dennis Shull.

“We’ve been doing this for ten years and enjoy the tradition, “ Shull said.  “Customers are able to get a real tree and benefit the community at the same time, it’s a win-win situation.” Shull says they have three variety of trees that come from Oregon and Hermann, Mo.  The trees came to the Sunrise Optimists at Thanksgiving.  They have Noble Firs, Scotch Pines and Balsam Fir.

Several businesses in Sedalia also sell Christmas trees: Menards, Lowes and Ace Hardware.

Menards Tree Stand

Menards in Sedalia has a selection in their Home & Garden section.  Their varieties are Fraser, Balsam Fir, White Pine Tree, Scotch Pine Tree along with wreaths. Sedalia Menards Manager Kenny Sackett says they can cut the ends off for customers and also wrap the trees up for easy transport if necessary. Sackett said the importance of maintaining the trees is to cut the ends off.  If you wrapped the tree you may let it out for three days to let it fully be on display and keep it watered.

Lowe's Tree Stand

Lowes in Sedalia also keeps their Christmas trees outside in the Garden Center.  They have living plant Christmas trees, Fraser Fir, Douglas Fir and Scotch Pine Christmas trees for sale.

Ace Hardware Tree Stand

Westlake Ace Hardware in Sedalia off Thompson Road has Scotch Pines, White Pines, Fraser Firs and wreaths for sale in front of the store that are available.

The key to real trees is keep them watered and make sure you clean up any of the needles that drop. There are some things to take into consideration when buying a tree, and it is not necessarily which type to buy or whether to choose artificial over real.  The economic benefits may indicate in the long run buying an artificial tree may be cheaper, but consider this: According to the USDA, almost all of the real Christmas trees sold in the U.S. are grown by U.S. farmers. On average, 25-30 million real trees are sold each year. This helps employ over 100,000 workers right here at home in all 50 states where Christmas trees are grown. The artificial ones more than likely made in China.

Another advantage is the pine scent that is given off from the tree. Many say that is the prime reason they love to get a real tree is to give a great scent through the air.

Regardless of your reason, we hope you enjoy your Christmas tree this holiday season.
