Christmas at Trax Farms
In the early 1950's, the Trax family began selling Christmas trees. It was wonderful opening the old barn door in December and immediately being surrounded by the strong, heavenly scent of fresh-cut pine. It was quiet in the barn, just a forest of Scotch pine trees lit by a few bare bulbs and the occasional sound of laughter or friendly conversation as the we helped friends and neighbors with their tree selection.
Today, you can still enjoy the scent of fresh pine and good old-fashioned customer service when you come to the South Hills' best place for Christmas trees. With more varieties than just Scotch pine and a knowledgeable staff, we're happy to help you from selecting the perfect tree to loading it onto your car. If you're looking for fresh-cut wreaths, greens, or great looking artificial pine sprays and arrangements, you'll discover Pittsburgh's best Christmas shop is at Trax. Our ornaments, decorations, tableware and premium Home & Gift department makes us the best place for holiday shopping and Christmas trees in the South Hills.
