Buying Christmas Trees in Boston
December 3, 2005 2:05 PM   Subscribe

Where can I buy a Christmas tree in Boston? I moved to Boston in August and live in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood. In every other city I've lived in, there were Christmas Tree stands all over the place. So far, I've seen none. I want to buy a live tree, but where do I go? So far, all I've seen are the cut-your-own places far out of town. Any ideas?

There are a bunch of places I know of in the Arlington, Watertown, Belmont area - they're not too hard to find. I drive through JP every morning and haven't noticed anywhere there though. I'd be surprised if you couldn't find a place in Dedham or Newton (closer to you)

Corner of Berkeley and Tremont in the South End.

I stopped by Allandale Farm today + they have a lot of trees. They are located on Allandale Rd down the street from the Faulkner Hospital.

Blooms and Greens in Roslindale sells trees, and they will deliver to JP if that's what you need.

There is usually a place selling trees on Harvard Street in Allston, right before the intersection with Cambridge St. I'm not sure if they've set up shop yet this year, though.

Oh, and the lot next to the IHOP on Soldier's Field Road in Brighton.

Order one from L.L.Bean. Free shipping and if you hate it, they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Disclaimer: I used to work for Bean. Their trees are great - grown in northern maine.

I second Allandale Farm. If you're in JP it's not far at all. I used to walk down there from the monument all the time.

Hooray! Ask MeFi reigns supreme! We didn't think we'd have time with all the work we both have to do today, but Allendale Farm is really close by. Thanks, everyone.

OK, thought I'd share. Here were each are this morning at Allendale Farm after reading Ask Mefi!

They are. Saw it today.
