Trees are still available at Santa's Forest at the Braefoot Community Centre.

Trees from Santa’s Forest benefit local programs

Braefoot and Santa's Forest Team Up For Victoria's Youth

The 20th anniversary of the Braefoot Community Association’s partnership with Santa’s Forest is yet another benchmark achieved over 30 years of community and youth-based programming.

“Santa’s Forest is about helping families continue their traditions with the best quality trees in Saanich and Victoria,” said Santa’s Forest director Kim Frocklage.

“Since Braefoot offers the highest-quality youth programming in the city, it’s a perfect fit.”

Last year’s stock sold out in record time so they’ve increased their number of trees and other products to match their growing popularity.

This year also marks the introduction of a bottle drive as part of Braefoot’s annual tree-recycling fundraiser.

On Jan. 1 and 2 families can drop off their trees by donation and unload all of their holiday empties at the same time. All proceeds will directly benefit Braefoot’s youth programming and facilities.

Braefoot’s lacrosse box has been home to Santa’s Forest every December since 1996. Santa’s Forest sells a variety of local and imported Christmas trees as well as other holiday fixtures like tree stands and handmade wreaths.
