It was cloudy and already late afternoon when I snapped these photos with my old iPhone. These are Noble fir trees from Serenity, Oregon. There are also Douglas firs off to one side.
These trees look enormous but this lot sponsored by the Wilshire Rotary Club also has $25 trees small enough to be placed on top of a corner table. A six-foot Noble is $75, a seven-foot Noble is $95, and the most expensive I spotted was a nine-footer priced at $175. For the larger trees, you will also need to buy a stand for an additional $25 or so.
Rotary Club volunteers staff the lot from 9 am to 9 pm every day, until December 23rd. Last Tuesday, I was showed around by Pearl, who is usually on site between one and six in the afternoon. She said that the Rotary has been managing the lot for the past three years, and the proceeds from the tree sales are donated to charity.
Lot’s Phone Number: (323) 464-1935.
