“Santa’s Trees “ is the name of the tree lot that is in front of Hillsboro High School. The man that runs the tree lot is Jim Mc Cloud. According to Jim Mc Cloud, the tree lot in front of Hillsboro high school is a “Green Hills Tradition.” He said, “This tree lot has been set up in front of Hillsboro every year since the late 1970’s.”

This company gets their trees in by a semi-truck once a week until right before Christmas. A security woman comes every night not only to protect the yard, but to water the trees and clean up. Santa’s Trees is open from now until Dec 25, 2017. Their hours are: Sunday through Saturday (7 days a week) 9:00AM to 9:00PM.

They are selling trees starting at 35 dollars and up depending on the kind of tree and the size.

They also sell wreaths, red bows, and garlands.

They will continue to sell trees and wreaths up until Christmas Day or until everything has been sold.
