Local scout troop selling trees across Evansville

Posted: Updated:

An after Thanksgiving day tradition for most, picking out a Christmas tree.

Evansville Boy Scouts are selling freshly cut trees at various locations.

There are plenty of trees to choose from and a lot of varieties.

If you come out to one of the Boy Scout sites, they will help you pick out the best tree for your home.

Boy Scout troop 322 starts selling trees each year on Black Friday.

Trees range in price from $25 to $150 for the extra large trees.

Boy Scouts not only raise money for yearly events, but they also learn about their product and about customer service.

"It's fun to help out the customer and it's also fun to learn the trees, how good they are for different things. For example, the white pine is good for people with allergies or the blue spruce holds its needles very well," says Troop 322 member Austin Uhr.

Trees will be on sale until Christmas or until they sell out of trees.
