Where To Buy Or Cut Your Own Fresh Christmas Tree In Beverly Hills

With Thanksgiving in the rear-view mirror it's time to find the perfect Christmas tree to decorate this holiday season.

BEVERLY HILLS, CA — People in Beverly Hills who prefer fresh-cut Christmas trees — whether they cut down trees themselves or buy from a retail lot — shouldn’t have any trouble finding them in 2022, according to a survey of Christmas tree growers by an industry trade group.

The prediction by the Real Christmas Tree Board comes after a survey of 55 wholesalers that supply two-thirds of the market for fresh trees and 1,500 U.S. adults ages 21-49.

“The real Christmas tree industry met demand last year, and it will meet demand this year,” Marsha Gray, executive director of the Real Christmas Tree Board, said in a news release. “This is essentially a year without surprises.”

Residents of Beverly Hills have plenty of options, sortable by ZIP code and by type, on the Real Christmas Tree Board website. They include:

Christmas Ranch Tree Farms Simi Valley: 3800 Cochran Street, Open on weekends 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Christmas Ranch Tree Farms Thousand Oaks: 1586 Pederson Rd, Open Monday-Thursday 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday-Sunday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Mr. Jingle Christmas Trees: 6333 W 3rd St, Open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.

Mr. Jingle Christmas Trees: 11852 Santa Monica Blvd, Open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.

Mr. Jingle Christmas Trees: 1841 N Highland Ave, Open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.

Oliver Holt Sons & Daughters Christmas Trees: 4452 Laurel Canyon Blvd, Open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.

Armstrong Garden Centers: 3226 Wilshire Blvd, Open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Sunday.

Armstrong Garden Centers: 12920 Magnolia Blvd, Open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Sunday.

Armstrong Garden Centers: 7540 S. Sepulveda Blvd, Open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Sunday.

Lowe's: 4550 W Pico Blvd, Open 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.

Home Depot: 5600 Sunset Blvd, Open 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

Sonshine Christmas Trees: 115 N Harbor Blvd, Open 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Sunday.

Trees, like everything else, may cost a little more this year. Tree growers answering the Real Christmas Tree Board’s survey said growing costs have increased. About 36 percent of respondents said costs were up 11 percent to 15 percent compared to last year, while 27 percent said costs increased 16 to 20 percent. Another 10 percent said the year-over-year increase in production costs was more than 21 percent.

As a result, 71 percent of growers said they would likely increase wholesale prices. That means trees could cost anywhere from 5 percent to 20 percent or more.

Consumers seem to be taking the expected price hikes in stride.

“While our grower survey tells us wholesale prices are likely to be higher for real Christmas trees this year, our consumer survey tells us people expected as much,” Gray said in the news release. “The good news is fans of real Christmas trees say they believe the trees are worth the price, and they are willing to pay more this year if necessary to get one — and that’s not a surprise either.”

Growers’ expectations of a healthy season are also tempered by fears of supply chain disruptions, the No. 1 concern of 44 percent of growers. About 35 percent said their top concern is that inflation-strapped consumers will cut real Christmas trees from their lists this year. About 21 percent of respondents cited labor availability concerns.

The origin of the Christmas tree can be traced to long before the advent of Christianity, according to History.com.

In ancient times, it was commonly believed the sun was a god. It appeared to be sick as daylight waned in the winter, but evergreens thriving during winter were a reminder that the sun would become strong again and lush greenery and warmth would return.

Evergreen trees were seen as a symbol of eternal life among ancient Egyptians, Hebrews and Chinese. Pagans throughout Europe used evergreens in their homes to represent fertility and new life.

Christmas trees were first used by devout Christians in Germany. The 16th century Protestant reformer Martin Luther is believed to have added lighted candles to trees. He was composing a sermon as he walked home on a winter evening and was struck by the sight of stars twinkling above the evergreens, and recreated the scene in a tree in his family’s main room.

Beverly Hills is home to the country's fifth most expensive zip code, and it's surrounded by pricey Southern California areas.

CALIFORNIA — Southern California is home to 40 of the United States' 100 most expensive zip codes, according to a ranking from PropertyShark.

Some 90 California zip codes made PropertyShark's list of the top 100 most expensive codes in the country. Four SoCal counties were represented in the top 100 list, with 21 zip codes in Los Angeles County, four in San Diego County, 10 in Orange County and five in Santa Barbara County.

"To determine the most expensive zip codes in the U.S., we looked at residential transactions closed between January 1, 2022, and October 31, 2022, taking into account condos; co-ops; and single- and two-family homes," according to PropertyShark. "For an accurate representation, we considered only zip codes that registered a minimum of three residential transactions. Due to a number of ties, 128 zips made it onto our list of the 100 most expensive zip codes in 2022."

Beverly Hills took the top spot in Southern California, ranking fifth in the country with a median residential sale price of $5.12 million in 2022. Santa Monica followed closely in the number seven spot with a median sale price of $4.4 million.

Los Angeles and New York City dethroned San Francisco as the city with the highest concentration of expensive zip codes, and cities like Beverly Hills and San Diego had major jumps in home prices over the last year.

San Diego County's median sale price increased 39 percent year over year, according to PropertyShark. Beverly Hills saw a 24 percent increase. Newport Beach also saw a significant jump in the ranking.

Northern California made a great showing as well. Atherton in San Mateo County took the top spot this year with a $7.9 million median sale price. The 94957 zip code in Ross, California took the number three spot after having a 20 percent increase in median sale prices in 2022, pushing it ahead of Fisher Island in Miami Beach.

California has been the leader of the top 100 for years, housing the four priciest counties, the most expensive metro area and four of the country's five priciest cities, according to PropertyShark.

Only 10 states are represented in the top 100 ranking: New York, California, Arizona, Florida, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Nevada, Washington and Connecticut.

Check how SoCal zip codes fared on the national ranking:

For 12 seasons, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has remained a staple in The Real Housewivesfranchise, and a possible cast shakeup could bring interesting changes. Loyal followers wait for the women to return to their screens every year. The series has given the world numerous quotable moments - “Beast? How dare you!” is one example. It's also sparked countless memes, such as a famous image featuring Taylor Armstrong and a cat. Through the years, the show has given fans a glimpse into the luxurious lives of wealthy women living in Beverly Hills, California. However, its most recent season caused quite a stir, and not in a good way.

Over the past few The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills seasons, viewers started to complain about the lack of companionship between the cast as a whole. They noticed that the women started to form cliques. In particular, Sutton Stracke and Garcelle Beauvais seemed to be Lisa Rinna and Erika Jayne's metaphorical punching bags. Kyle Richards would play both sides, but showed more loyalty to Lisa and Erika. However, the most recent season saw the cast scrambling for storylines, in addition to causing major drama, as they treated each other badly. This caused fans to lash out on social media. Now, RHOBH audiences are thinking that the cast needs an overall shakeup for future seasons, as no one is happy with the current lineup.

There Is Chatter About a Potential RHOBH Shakeup

There is talk that producers will take a new direction in upcoming seasons, and the gossip comes from fans and inside sources. People are beginning to speculate about what RHOBH's future could look like. There has been chatter about the show going on hiatus for the rest of 2022, until late January 2023, while Bravo figures out how the show will be handled in the future. This is reportedly due to backlash over season 12. It is also being speculated that Diana Jenkins and Crystal Kung Minkoff may be fired, and that producers are on the fence about whether they want to bring back Kathy Hilton and Lisa. There is still no word on whether Kyle, Garcelle, Erika, or Sutton will return, but it is being reported that Dorit Kemsley may be demoted to a "friend of" role. However, fans may be seeing some familiar faces, as Brandi Glanville and Lisa Vanderpump are in talks to return to the fan-favorite series.

How The Shakeup May Affect RHOBH Going Forward

Whether the speculation and rumors are true remains to be seen, as RHOBH season 12 just came to an end, but franchise followers have been wanting a cast shakeup for a while now. After certain episodes aired, fans were quick to notice that the women were even more catty than usual, with some cast members ganging up on others. Then, Garcelle’s son became the target of vicious threats on Instagram. Going forward, if Brandi or LVP are brought back, the show could look quite different, as they would probably stir up the drama in a whole new way. They might cut the other women down to size. However, if Crystal were to leave, it could potentially be a big no-no, as things started to get heated between her and Kyle during the reunion, and fans want to see that play out. The entire RHOBH dynamic would shift if Lisa and Kyle were on the same season as LVP once again, as she is good friends with Garcelle, and LVP's presence would make for a very interesting season.

Since its season 12 reunion, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been on the minds of Bravo lovers around the world, as they are wondering what is in store for the series. With conflict brewing left and right between the women, it is safe to say that the cast has never been more at odds. Kathy and Kyle’s relationship does not look as if it is going to be repaired anytime soon, while Erika and Lisa are constantly going after Garcelle and Sutton. If any of the gossip is true, the RHOBH cast shakeup could not come at a better time for the series.
