Local News

AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — Christmas is just a few weeks away and Troop 80 wants to help put you in the holiday spirit with a new Christmas tree.

“We are open for the season ready to sell trees, wreaths, swag to folks to make their Christmas a little bit bright. With the 2020 that we’ve all had, I think everybody’s looking for a little bit of brightness in their year and that’s something we can help provide with our trees,” said Jeff Sulik, Troop 80 Assistant Scout Master.

Treeland offers up about a dozen different varieties of Christmas trees for their awaiting customers.

Money raised from the tree sales goes towards funding the troops activities throughout the year.

The troops also learn a variety of skills.

“They can learn salesmanship, learn customer service. Having to be out here on a brisk morning, getting out of bed and showing some commitment to work. But really it’s just a matter of the scouts getting out here and learning how to run a business and be a part of a team that’s trying to provide a service,” said Sulik.

Which Troop 80 boy scout Hagen Hutto said he loves to do.

“It just gives a lot of joy to people I feel like just because of the smell and everything and how careful some of our boys are. So it just gives them a little bit of happiness. I want to do it every day,” said Hutto.

“We see multiple generations come out to pick up trees. The scouts have a lot of fun just talking with families, helping them pick out their tree for their holiday celebrations,” said Sulik.

Treeland will be open through December 20th.
