SEFS Christmas Tree Sale: Place Your Orders!

This fall, the Forest Club is once again proud to organize one of our most popular community traditions: the annual Christmas Tree Sale!

Founded in 1908, the Forest Club is one of the oldest and longest-running clubs at the University of Washington, and every year the group sells freshly cut noble fir (Abies procera) Christmas trees to folks at UW and throughout the city of Seattle. Former Forest Club president and current master’s student Caileigh Shoot is leading the sale, and this year she’s recruited a wide range of students and clubs—from IFSA to SAF to TAPPI to Dead Elk and more—to help with cutting and delivering the trees. Caileigh and her team will head out to harvest the trees on Saturday, December 3, and then have them ready for pick-up on Sunday, December 4, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Center for Urban Horticulture (3501 NE 41st Street) —on the blacktop on the east side of the property, between the greenhouses and Yesler Swamp.

Xmas Tree Sale

Community members pick up their trees from the Center for Urban Horticulture.

Our beautiful noble firs come from Hunter Farms, and they are typically 4 to 7 feet tall (and, in past years, the larger trees have typically gone fastest, so come early if size is super important to you). All trees, regardless of size, are $45 (and non-refundable), and all proceeds benefit the Forest Club and other partner student groups assisting with the sale.

Trees are available for pre-order starting now through Thursday, December 1.

You can order your tree one of three ways:

1. Use the super-easy online form and pay with credit card.
2. Fill out and mail the paper form with a checkmade out to the UW Forest Club—to: UW Forest Club, Box 352100, Seattle, WA 98195
3. Print and hand deliver the form and payment—using cash, check or card—to Anderson 130, or if no one is available there, Anderson 107.

Remember, all forms must be received by close of business on Thursday, December 1, before the crew heads out into the woods, so don’t delay!
