Newcastle residents have a few local options when it comes to buying a Christmas tree.

Boy Scout Troop 626 opened its Newport Hills tree lot just after Thanksgiving. The Scouts assembled display stands, unwrapped trees and decorated the lot in late November.

This is the Scouts’ 33rd year using tree sales as its annual fundraiser. They work out of the Newport Hills Swim & Tennis Club parking lot, 5464 119th Ave. S.E., Bellevue.

“It is a fantastic fundraiser,” said Scoutmaster Barry Chu. “The Scouts learn a great deal about customer service and salesmanship, providing a wonderful tree-shopping experience for the community.”

Scouts help customers find the right tree, fresh-cut the bottom of the tree and help tie the tree on the roof of the customers’ cars using knots they learned through scouting, Chu said.

“Many of our customers return every year,” he said.

The Troop 626 Christmas tree lot is open through Dec. 19 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends and 5-8 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.

The Newcastle Fruit & Produce stand, 13013 Newcastle Way, is also selling trees. The stand will remain open through December.
