Where to Get Your Holiday Tree On The Hill

Is it time to get your holiday tree!

Lucky for you, you don’t have to go far (or even leave the house if you don’t want!) to get your tree. There’s a number of fundraisers, schools and local businesses that sell trees right here on the Hill. Shop local, shop supportive, shop your community.

But most fundraisers do expect to sell out! So, don’t wait: preorder has already started for many.
