The Ross School PTA’s annual Holiday Tree Sale ends this weekend, one weekend ahead of schedule. According to the organizers, sales were so heavy last weekend that there are not enough trees to continue into next weekend.

The main location is at the Ross School playground at 1730 R St. NW with a second location at Cafe Saint-Ex, 14th and T Streets NW.

Proceeds from the school playground go to the PTA while Saint-Ex sales go toward renovation of the Ross School cafeteria. Tax Deductible? Yes, 50% of the purchase price of your tree is tax deductible.
