With most Christmas tree sellers having sold out, a new shipment of trees arriving today in Aiea was drawing people who hadn’t found one yet.

For those who thought they had missed their chance in Honolulu to buy a genuine Christmas tree this year, Specialty Holiday Season has shipped in some 250 small, fresh-cut Noble firs from Oregon that it’s selling this afternoon and this evening at its two-tent location behind Best Buy in Aiea.

Two-to-3-foot “table top” trees are marked at $55 apiece, while 3-to-4-foot trees are going for $80 each, said Thomas Esperanza, proprietor.
Once those are sold, there will be no more real Christmas trees on Oahu this year, he said.
“Right now I’m the only Christmas tree retailer in Honolulu,” said Esperanza.
However, Helemano Farms in Wahiawa, grower of Norfolk pines, is offering trees until it closes for the season on Tuesday. You pick the tree, employees cut it for you.
Go to www.HelemanoFarms.com for hours, location and more.
