Christmas Tree Sale to Benefit Yale School of Forestry Programs
Students at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies who are members of the student chapter of the Society of American Foresters are holding their annual Christmas tree sale on Saturday, Dec. 5.
Funds from the sale – which will take place at Marsh Hall, 360 Prospect St. from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. – will be used to sponsor events at the School of Forestry throughout the year. Activities include community outreach, field trips, guest lectures, seminars and discussion groups, all relating to the increasingly important field of natural resource management.
The Christmas trees are grown at the Yale-Meyers Forest in Union, Conn., where students and faculty advisers use no herbicides or pesticides. This year, students will be selling white spruce, blue spruce and Douglas fir at the low price of $5 per foot.
