Like an eccentric uncle, the holidays often sneak up on people and leave tinsel wherever they go. Deck the halls with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a 6- to 7-foot, high-grade holiday fraser fir tree at Trees 4 Pets’ locations in Edgewater and Jersey City (a $70 value).
High-grade firs stand ready at two Trees 4 Pets locations to adorn homes in a tree sale that helps to fill the pockets of START II, which finds homes for owner-less animals, with each purchase. Six-foot high-quality North Carolina fraser firs majestically dwarf even the stateliest of desk bonsais, and trees topping 7 feet tower over Magic Johnson. Families can enlist the help of their pets as they tour the lot and scrutinize potential matches to find an ideal hall decker. After group hugs with new firs, tree shoppers can visit a drop box collecting pet food, supplies, and toys or browse information about adoptable animals in need of a home for the holidays.
Edgewater Tree Barn
Edgewater Tree Barn’s trees travel from both local farms and the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to decorate living rooms for the holiday season. On sturdy branches, the needles of the fraser and douglas firs twinkle magically under the rays of colorful Christmas tree lights. The trees range in height from 5 to 13 feet, allowing them to fit into tight corners or tower majestically in a stately living room or two-story cave. The lot also supplies wreaths, roping, and other seasonal decorating tools.
In addition to populating homes with seasonal greenery, the holiday helpers behind Edgewater Tree Barn also embody the spirit of the season through their ongoing charitable work. This year, they're collecting supplies for a local animal shelter and the pets in its care.
