For anyone still needing a Christmas tree, Bulkley Valley Santa’s tree farm is offering their trees by donation.
According to owner Len Vanderstar, the proceeds from the trees will be going towards the Northern Lights Wildlife Society and the Samburu Girls Foundation in Kenya.
Vanderstar said this is not the first year where trees are available by donation.
“We have lots of trees to move and it’s the second Christmas we’re going into a bit of a COVID situation so, it’s really important that there should be no family out there that should not have a Christmas tree for this festive season,” he said.
He added if a tree is too big to become a Christmas tree he will send them over to the Northern Lights Wildlife Society for the bears.
“We’ve built a relationship with the Northern Lights Wildlife Shelter and they do some really good work because it’s basically a rehab facility for orphaned and young injured wildlife and they provide a safe haven for them until they can be reintroduced into the wild, so it’s a great initiative to support,” Vanderstar said.
Anyone wishing to get a Christmas tree can contact the Bulkley Valley Santa’s Tree Farm on Facebook or Varagesale or set up an appointment by phone and all required tools are available.
He added anyone who can’t make it to the tree farm delivery can be arranged.
