decorated in a home for the holidays.
GRAFTON — This season, Trees for Less has been looking to do
Trees for Less came to Grafton last year. A second location of
the company that also is in Mequon, the Grafton location’s point
of pride is selling Fraser firs.
“It’s the only property in Ozaukee growing Fraser firs because
of the soil,” Trees for Less owner Lisa O’Malley said.
This year Trees for Less is branching out, offering more to the
local community. One weekend visitors found Santa at the Grafton
tree farm, and the Mequon location has hay rides, hot chocolate,
snacks and a fire pit to enjoy. But the highlight of the of
Trees for Less’ season of giving was when the tree farm donated
about 50 trees to Family Sharing of Ozaukee County, helping
local families in need celebrate the holiday season.
Recent visitors to Trees for
Less in Grafton spend quality time with Santa Claus
before venturing out to look for a tree.
“It was amazing,”
O’Malley said. “How excited these people were, it was
very cool. We plan on doing this into the future.”
Family Sharing of Ozaukee is a nonprofit operating a
food pantry and resale shop to distribute food, clothing
and household items to those in need, free of charge.
The trees donated by Trees for Less went to member
families who wanted a tree, but may not have had the
means to get a Christmas tree any other way.
This past weekend, Trees for Less in Grafton featured
Mike Gregory playing Christmas music on the banjo.

Concolor fir trees at $10 per foot of height as well as
