"We typically sell between 400 and 500 trees each year," says Bob Spielman, with the Y's Men's Club. "The Y has been selling Christmas trees for over 30 years. Ours was the only tree lot in Simi in the 1970s."
The Y lot is selling Douglas fir and Noble trees ranging from 5' to 8'. In addition to selling trees, each year, the Simi Y identifies 15 to 20 local needy families and donates and delivers Christmas trees to each of them.
Hours are 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. The tree lot is located at the Y (3200 Cochran St., corner of Galena Ave. and Cochran St., in Simi Valley). For more information, call 805-583-5338.
