The Deschutes Land Trust will deliver two dozen fresh-cut trees to MountainStar Family Relief Nursery, on Tuesday, December 7. The trees will be harvested that morning by volunteers on the Deschutes Land Trust’s Metolius Preserve and then delivered to MountainStar families that evening.
The Land Trust is donating grand firs that will be thinned as part of their long-term forest restoration at their Metolius Preserve. “The Land Trust is really pleased to be able to share some trees with MountainStar families. The grand firs make perfect Christmas trees and, instead of landing in burn piles, they’re going to families that need them,” said Brad Chalfant the Deschutes Land Trust’s Executive Director.
“Christmas is all about generosity. These trees are a huge benefit to our families and it’s the little boosts like this that really help during the holiday season,” said Tim Rusk MountainStar’s Executive Director.
MountainStar Family Relief Nursery is dedicated to preventing child abuse and neglect in Central Oregon by providing services to keep children safe, parents successful and families together. The Nursery provides crisis intervention and a therapeutic classroom for babies and young children aged 6-weeks to 4-years-old.
