Sales began the day after Thanksgiving, November 28th and will continue throughout December. The profits from the tree lot will be going to charities that the Fayette County Civitan Club supports.

The trees come in a variety of sizes. The location of the Christmas Tree lot is at Melear’s BBQ Restaurant Parking Lot, 420 Glynn Street South or State Highway 85 in Fayetteville, GA.
