A Canton holiday tradition returns on Sat. Dec. 3. The Canton Land Conservation Trust will hold its Christmas Tree and Greens Sale from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Smith Christmas Tree Farm on Doyle Road.
There are 60-some great-looking spruce and fir trees. Trees will start as low as $25, and bundles of pine greens will be $5. There will be cookies and hot chocolate to whet your tree hunting appetites, and folks available to help you cut your tree and hoist it onto the roof of your car. Remember to bring rope to assist with tying.
This event creates fond family memories of tromping through the fields (and sometimes snow) searching for the perfect tree. The Land Trust encourages all to stay and hike the property.
This is also the time of year to renew your Land Trust membership, or join for the very first time. See www.cantonlandtrust.org.
Directions: take Wright Road from Route 179 (Cherry Brook Road). Turn left from Wright Road onto Doyle Road and continue for one-half mile. The last portion is unpaved. There is ample parking near the farm’s barn.
The Canton Land Conservation Trust is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated since 1972 to protecting the natural resources and open spaces of Canton. The CLCT provides stewardship for over 2,000 acres in town, many of which offer trails open to the public all year. Trail maps and properties can be viewed on the CLCT website at www.cantonlandtrust.org.
