The Best of South Florida: Best Place To Buy A Christmas Tree
Believe it or not, two weeks from tonight, St. Nick could have a problem leaving the presents. It turns out many of us are missing the all-critical Christmas tree. So if you're still looking to spruce up your home, our viewers are going out on a limb to find the best of South Florida.
(WSVN) The Christmas tradition isn't complete without the Christmas tree.
So before you deck the halls, this holiday won't be perfect without the popular pine.
"That's what makes Christmas for me."
What makes Christmas at our number three choice is your buying more than just bark from the Boys and Girl's Club of Miami.
"The purpose of it is to give a nice playground and activity center for children."
A great cause, but the customers say they keep coming back for the great quality.
"They have the best trees I've ever gotten in Miami and I've lived here since 1972."
"When you reach into the truck, it was still cold from coming off the truck, it was so fresh."
Straight from the north pole, the best things here come in little packages or big packages depending on your budget.
"We sell trees from 3 feet all the way up to 25 feet."
Our number 2 choice puts the "X" in extra large selection at K-B Christmas Trees in North Miami.
"We have every tree that people would want - tall one, thin one, fat one."
Not to mention - your choice of Frasier Fir, Scotch Pine, and a Blue Spruce keep the customers coming back.
"8 maybe 9 years."
"The trees have been great."
And the service is great when it comes to sizing up the selection.
"We help them select the tree, pick out the right size, don't get one too big for the house which happens a lot."
And a lot of people notice the difference.
"All you have to do is take your hands through the branches and if you get nothing in it, than its a good tree."
And, you know, if you want to pick the best tree you've got to get bundled up, ready for the woods, saw in hand, and go cut your own down. And then, give it up! We live in Miami! Our viewers say, just head to Home Depot.
"We started coming to home depot because the trees were a good price."
From fake trees to fantastic trees, even scrooge wouldn't mind spending a buck.
"The lowest on the market, nobody can beat home depot of course."
And it's hard to beat their service.
They'll trim the trunk....
Net your tree... and carry your tree right to your car.
"Every year we come over here to buy this tree."
And if you're having any trouble trimming your tree, it's one stop shopping. From lights to preservatives you can stock up on supplies for the perfect holiday.
And our holiday theme continues next week -- with some friendly advice for the procastinator in the family. We'll show you the best places to go for last minute shopping.
Also don't forget to vote for the Best Cuban Food in South Florida.
