2020 Christmas TreesAlthough many holiday traditions have been modified this year because of COVID-19, even a pandemic can’t dampen the desire for a Christmas tree, brightly decorated and surrounded by presents. This year, many people are putting up their trees earlier than usual, in order to embrace the Christmas season at the end of a rater dark year. Once again, Rudy's Happy Patch Market welcomes area customers as they shop for their perfect tree.

Staff member and tree wrangler Kelly Jansen explains, “We know that many of our customers want to be early with their home Christmas tree decorating. There is a shortage of Christmas trees with the fire destruction this year. We had one sell the day the trees were delivered.” 

At last count, 100 Frazier firs were awaiting a new home. Trees range in heights from six to 12 feet at prices from $45 to $110. Also available this year is the “Handi-Thing” tree stand. This stand braces the trees and holds water for freshness. Last year’s steel stand is also available, and both are reusable for years to come. There is a charge of $10 to $25 to add a tree stand.

Trees will be loaded at the market, but due to the virus, home delivery is not available this year. Customers can visit the pavilion in the south parking lot for early selection.
