The tree farm could only supply us with half our original order for the weekend of 13/14 December due to the ongoing drought conditions. As a result we have sold out of trees.
We will not be selling any more trees for 2019.
We will be open on Saturday 14 December for pickup of pre-ordered trees. For those who have pre-ordered their tree for this weekend, but not yet picked up their tree, we encourage you to visit the Hall before 10am.
Thank you for supporting Northbridge Scouts this year. We look forward to seeing you in 2020. We encourage people to pre-order their Christmas Tree to avoid disappointment.
1st Northbridge Sea Scouts are continuing their local tradition this festive season, selling fresh Christmas trees at their Scout Hall in early December.
All funds raised through our Christmas Tree sale go towards essential equipment and expenses such as life jackets, sails, tents and shed repairs - all necessary for the Sea Scouts to undertake scouting activities throughout the year.
Visit our Scout Hall to pick your own tree! You can take your tree home with you, or for a small fee we can deliver the tree. Our trees are very popular and sell quickly.
Important note about drought conditions and tree sizes In previous years, we have sold three sizes of trees: small (around 6'), medium (around 7') and large (around 8') trees, Unfortunately due to the ongoing drought, there is an acute shortage of large and medium trees in NSW and VIC. The drought also means the trees have grown at a much slower pace, are not as wide and as bushy under average rainfall conditions.
Why Pre-order / pre-pay for your Christmas tree?
You don't need to worry about payment when you visit the Scout Hall.
We will secure a good tree if you are running late or unable to visit the Hall to pick your tree and stocks of good trees are getting low.
If you are unable to visit the Hall, we can pick and deliver the tree for you.
When are we selling trees? We will be selling on two consecutive weekends in December 2019.
Friday 6 December - 3:30pm to 7:00pm - SOLD OUT! Saturday 7 December - 8:30am to 4:00pm (unless sold out earlier) - SOLD OUT!

Boatshed Works Donation
A$2.00 - A$100.00
With long term rising sea levels, we need to raise our boatshed to prevent high tides from reaching the floor. This is a costly exercise which we need to raise funds. Your donation towards this project would be greatly appreciated.
