CHRISTMAS TREES AT SANTA ANITA NOVEMBER 25!! 1,000 TREES TO BE SOLD THROUGH DECEMBER 23

ARCADIA, Calif. (Nov. 21, 2011)—For the very first time, Christmas Trees will be available for purchase at Santa Anita Park, beginning Friday, Nov. 25. Tahoe Christmas Tree Company will set up in the track’s southwest parking lot, Gate 1, and more than 1,000 trees will be displayed through Dec. 23.

“The majority of our trees come from Oregon direct from the growers,” said Julian Blandino of Tahoe Christmas Trees. “Our trees are hand-picked from the fields and not bought from distributors and wholesalers who buy them in bulk form for chain stores, so Tahoe trees are always fresh. That’s why our trees come with a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee.”

Tahoe Trees is family-owned and was started in the 1940s. They have five other locations, in City of Industry, Eagle Rock, Highland Park, Pasadena and Upland.

Snowflocking, fireproofing and delivery service are all available. Tahoe Christmas Trees also provides free assistance in securing trees to cars or trucks after purchase.

The lot, which will adjoin the Westfield Shopping Mall, will operate daily from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m.

Santa Anita’s 2011-12 winter/spring meet opens Monday, Dec. 26. First post time is 12 noon. For more information, go to www.santaanita.com, or call (626) 574-RACE.
