You’ve cleared out a space and hauled down the decorations and the lights. Now where to get a beautiful live tree? Skip the grocery store parking lots and try one of these options.
St Lawrence Market
Jeff the Tree Guy is the best place to get fresh and local trees and wreaths, according to many locals. His stand runs from the last week in November until December 24th.
92-95 Front St East, Toronto
Don’t have a car? No sweat, EZ Tree will deliver a Christmas tree to you. They’ll rent you a tree stand, and even dispose of the tree for you at the end of the season. Definitely not the cheapest option, but probably the easiest.
Evergreen Garden Market
Local fresh trees from this community environmental centre.
Evergreen Brickworks, 550 Bayview Ave, Toronto
Davenport Garden Centre
Looking for many trees to choose from downtown? This garden centre is another local favourite, with knowledgeable and helpful staff.
1466 Bayview Ave & 368 Davenport Rd, Toronto
Scouts Canada Tree Lots
Many local Scout troops run Christmas tree lots, and it’s a great way to get a tree and donate to kids activities in your neighbourhood. Check out the 91st Glenrhodes Troop tree lot at the Grant African Methodist Episcopal Church at 2029 Gerrard St East.
Elliott Tree Farm
A family tree farm dating from 1890, you can harvest your own Blue Spruce, White Spruce, or White Pine. There are pre-cut Fraser Fir and Balsam Fir as well. They open November 28th.
