You need a tree? You need to see Curtis

December 6, 2010

For 25 years Curtis has been selling Christmas trees at 50th and Baltimore.

“I know I don’t look that old, but what can I say,” he said as he oversaw the loading of another tree – a 6-footer – atop a car roof.

Curtis has a selection of trees ranging from $15 for a 4-foot-or-so to $60 for trees up to about 10 feet. He said there is no way he will run out before Christmas, so look for his stand between the Dock Street Brewing Co. and Cedar Park. In fact, Curtis stressed, if you don’t have a tree by midnight on Christmas Eve, then stop by and he will give you whatever is left over.

Curtis is typically open every day from 8:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. When you see him make sure you mention how good he looks for his age. He likes that.

We are looking for more places to get a tree. If you have any favorite spots, let us know in the comments or write to us at editor [at]

    Julie, a reader, e-mailed us to throw Linvilla Orchard in Media, where you can cut your own tree, and – in the city – Greensgrow, the urban farm at 2501 E. Cumberland St. 19125 into the mix. Any more suggestions? Click on “comments” and speak your mind.
