LA Intel: Where LA’s Wealthy and Elite Shop for Christmas Trees — Mr. Greentrees | The Daily Truffle LA

LA Intel: Where LA’s Wealthy and Elite Shop for Christmas Trees — Mr. Greentrees

Mr. Greentree’s delivery -> Greenacres on Benedict Canyon (aka Ron Burkle’s house)

If you are say … Ron Burkle or Arianna Huffington or the Four Seasons, this is where you do your Christmas *(tree) shopping.

Mr. Greentrees is one of LA’s longest lasting Christmas tree stores … and a second generation business (the mom recently handed the business to her daughter). This is the same team that brings you Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch during Halloween and we’ve put in a request for ‘bunny land’ this Easter.

We’ll keep you posted on their response on that. 🙂

Rebecca Campbell who started the company, and works on a real live Christmas tree farm in Oregon, can tell you anything about Christmas — like why you can’t find a silver tip (the Rolls Royce of xmas trees) anymore.

We spotted a few interesting name tags going to LA homes like Ms. Huffington (she actually had 2 tagged!!) and Greenacres — a Benedict Canyon estate currently owned by billionaire Ron Burkle who has been known to throw quite the ragers at his home with A list entertainment like Mariah Carey.

#TruffleNotes: The original owner of Greenacres, silent movie film star Harold Lloyd, had a room dedicated for Christmas all year round and has a fully decorated Christmas tree 365 days of the year.

Mr. Greentrees was formerly located on Wilshire in Holmy Hills. Their first Christmas open, the property owner said the lot would be developed for condos the following year but it took a decade to get permits and so Mr. Greentrees remained there for ten years 🙂

Today they are on Doheny just above Santa Monica Blvd. The entire staff lives out of trailers along the white tent that looks like a big top and one employee is dedicated to keeping a small hot dog cart up and running for the 20+ employees working the lot from Nov. 25 – Dec. 25 each year.
