Christmas tree giveaway to spread festive cheer

03 Dec 20


The team at OneFortyOne is spreading some festive cheer at their annual Christmas Tree Giveaway this December.

For the fifth year, OneFortyOne will have fresh pine trees available for the community to collect at its nursery in Glencoe, and depots at Mount Gambier, Nangwarry and Mount Burr.

OneFortyOne Estate Manager Andrew Matheson said the giveaway is in its fifth year.

“We’ve given hundreds of trees away over the years,” Andrew said.

“Without a doubt the best part of the giveaway is seeing families arriving and picking the perfect tree together.”

“Hearing people’s Christmas stories, and being able to provide something special for the community to take home is really why we do it. Christmas trees are a feature of celebrations with family and friends at this special time of year.”

Trees will be available from 8am on the 10th and 11th of December, on a first come, first served basis at the OneFortyOne nursery and depots. Please be COVID safe by maintaining physical distancing and using the sanitiser provided.

If you’re planning on picking up a free fresh pine, remember to make sure you can safely and legally secure the load on the way home.

Depot locations:

  • Glencoe Nursery, Mile Hill Road, Glencoe
  • Gambier Depot, 152 Jubilee Highway East, Mount Gambier
  • Nangwarry Depot, Riddoch Highway, Nangwarry
  • Mount Burr Depot, Mount Burr Road, Mount Burr
