For 93 Years Bustard’s Christmas Trees in Lansdale Has Been Da Bomb in Tannenbaums

By

After 93 years in business, Bustard’s Christmas Trees in Lansdale is still one of the region’s hotspots for picking out the perfect tree, writes Bryanna Gallagher for 6abc.

While some local families have made it a tradition to visit the family business ahead of Christmas, others are responding to great reviews and visiting from out of state.

“We were looking for the best place to get trees, it was about an hour drive,” said Marie White, whose family drove from Claymont, Del. to find the right tree.

The fresh-cut trees come in many varieties, and range from three feet to as tall as 15 feet high.

“We got Frazier fur, Douglass furs, Norman furs,” said Glenn Bustard, the co-owner of Bustard’s Christmas Trees.

The cost varies based on the size and variety, and the prices are a little higher this year.

“Prices are up on trees; our trucking costs were up, [as were] overall costs of just maintaining the trees with gas prices and mowing around them,” said Bustard.

Nevertheless, the demand for trees is huge. The business sold about 700 Christmas trees just on Saturday. It will be open until the trees sell out.
