Check out one of Big Wave Dave’s Christmas tree lots this year to find your perfect tree. Big Wave Dave’s has five tree lot locations: two in Ventura, Moorpark (Underwood Farms), Santa Barbara and in Camarillo. Pick up mistletoe and wreaths too.
Big Wave Dave’s lots are open through December 23 except at Underwood Farms in Moorpark where trees are available through December 18. Bring your family to Underwood Farms for tractor rides and an animal show. Santa Claus will visit the farm December 1, 2, 8 & 9 from 11am-4pm. All locations have plenty of hot chocolate, coffee and treats.
The lots offer six varieties of trees: Douglas Fir, Noble Fir, Fraser Fir, Grand Fir and Nordman Fir and Natural Silver Tip. They range in size from tabletop to nearly 20’ tall. The taller trees are often displayed in businesses and at shopping malls around the area. Flocked trees come in all sorts of colors, and since the flocking material is made of paper, flocked trees can be recycled.
When trees arrive at Big Wave Dave’s, the base of the trunks are immediately cut and the trees are displayed in water to keep them fresh. After they are sold, the trunks are cut again before leaving the lot.
Don’t forget that Christmas trees can be recycled into mulch. To get the process going, simply remove ornaments and lights, cut the limbs and place them in your green recycling container. They’ll then be delivered to Agromin where we’ll recycle about 100,000 trees after the holidays.
