31 years of Christmas trees at Temperanceville

Photo by Barry Wallace
If you've lived in the King City/Temperanceville area for any length of time, you probably bought a Christmas tree at the tree lot on the northwest corner of the King Road and Bathurst Street.   This the 31st year that Christmas trees have been for sale on this spot.   For 24 years, it was Ivan who sold the trees here.   After Ivan passed away seven years ago and his niece Dana, (pictured above on the left with one of her helpers) took over the business.   The King City Lions Club has been a recipient of a portion of the monies from the sale each tree for many years.

  3. Buyers, beware! Different sales people will provide different prices for the same tree. The owner Dana added a $10 on top of previously communicated sales price and was rude and unprofessional when we asked to respect the original price given. Perhaps it’s tome for them to put up the actual tags, so there’s no room for ripping customers off?!
    Left with a very unpleasant and un-Christmas-y feeling
