Where To Buy Or Cut Your Own Fresh Christmas Tree In Malibu

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

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

MALIBU, CA — People in Malibu 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 Malibu 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.

Oliver Holt Sons & Daughters Christmas Trees: 5500 Canoga Ave, Open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.

Mr. Jingle Christmas Trees: 6100 Topanga Canyon Blvd, 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.

Armstrong Garden Centers: 50 Taylor Court, Open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Sunday.

Armstrong Garden Centers: 3326 Wilshire 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.

Home Depot: 22855 Victory Blvd, Open 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

Home Depot: 2745 Teller Rd, 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.

MALIBU, CA — After 22 years as a local staple for good food and outstanding cars, the Malibu Kitchen will close on Dec. 4, owner Bill Miller announced to Instagram

"It's been an honor and a pleasure taking care of the Malibu , feeding them, and all the people that have come here from all over the world," Miller said said. "It's been an incredible ride."

Miller didn't offer much insight into why the restaurant was closing, but said it may reopen elsewhere in Malibu. Patrons can stay updated on the restaurant's social media.

The Malibu Kitchen has long been a staple for baked goods, deli classics and famous dishes like their meatloaf sandwich. The spot also attracts car-lovers and a regular smattering of vintage and luxury cars. Miller and his "other half," co-owner Judith Haenel, kept the restaurant open during the Woolsey Fire to help feed their community.

Malibu Kitchen will serve one last Thanksgiving meal, doling out pies, turkey, quarts of soup and classic sides. To see the Thanksgiving pickup menu, visit this link.

"Things just change and you have to move on," Miller said. "It's going to be OK. Come in, get your last meatloaf sandwich, or your last thin and crispy cookies — a lot of that will be available online. And your pies — come get your pies."

Miller said he and Haenel are grateful for their time in the Malibu community. It brings Miller great joy when a diner tells him they love the food, or enjoy sitting on the porch, he said.

"Thank you. Thank you for all the years, thank you for a great time and a great life here in Malibu. See you soon," he said.

Many patrons took to social media to express their disappointment and love for Malibu Kitchen, calling the closure an "end of an era" in Malibu.

"From the first time I walked through the creaky screen door at the pre-opening event, to bringing family and out-of-town guests to eat delicious food on the porch, to running into industry friends there...I have so many sweet memories of a very special place and two incredibly generous, talented, loving and caring people. Much love to both of you," one person wrote on Instagram.

"It's hard to imagine [Cross Creek] without Malibu Kitchen. So sad to hear this news. We love you guys and wish you all the best," another person wrote.

Miley Cyrus and Maxx Morando Prove They’re Still Going Strong With Malibu Outing

We can't stop, we won't stop talking about Miley Cyrus and Maxx Morando's romance

The "Party in the U.S.A" singer and her rocker boyfriend had a rare outing over the weekend, enjoying brunch at Le Cafe de la Plage in Malibu on Nov. 27.

Miley, who carried a to-go bag and coffee from the restaurant, wore a large denim button down over a white t-shirt with multicolored pants. She finished her look off with a messy updo, sunglasses and open toed shoes.

Meanwhile, the Liily's drummer wore his hair in his signature messy mop with a striped button down open over a white t-shirt and blue pants. He completed his look with sunglasses and Adidas athletic shoes.

The outing comes just after both Miley and Maxx celebrated their birthdays, with Miley turning 30 on Nov. 23 and Maxx celebrating his 24th birthday on Nov. 16. And after a year together, their romance is showing no signs of slowing down.

"Miley and Maxx are still going strong and their relationship is very serious," a source close to the Hannah Montana alum told E! News in October. "They have been together for about a year now and Miley is really happy. Everyone in her family loves them together and thinks they mesh really well."

The pair started dating in late 2021 after meeting through mutual friends. At the time, a source told E!, "They are both artistic and creative, so they bond over being musicians."

And Miley, who split from husband Liam Hemsworth in 2019, is determined to keep their relationship low-key. "She wanted to take a step back from a crazy work schedule recently," the source continued. "She's in a good place."

In fact, he was in Miami to support her while she hosted last year's Miley's New Year's Eve Party for NBC in 2021 alongside Pete Davidson.

"He was backstage with Miley and Pete at the New Year's Eve rehearsals and taping having a good time with them," the source added, "They were are all super friendly with one another and seemed to have a great night."

Malibu Foundation sets new record at Re-Plant Love 2022 event

“Re-Plant Love,” a collaboration between Malibu Foundation, Clarins and the National Park Service (NPS), and various other community groups and agencies, planted over 8,000 native trees and shrubs and dispersed over 50,000 seeds at Paramount Ranch on Nov. 5.

“Re-Plant Love,” a collaboration between Malibu Foundation, Clarins and the National Park Service (NPS), and various other community groups and agencies, planted over 8,000 native trees and shrubs and dispersed over 50,000 seeds at Paramount Ranch on Nov. 5. Over 500 volunteers showed up from seven different states, ranging in age from 1 to 88 years old, to get their hands dirty and get the job done. This was the third annual such event.

The mission of “Re-Plant Love” is to advance biodiversity and sustainability by replanting native trees and plants lost in the Woolsey Fire in 2018. The event takes place on the closest weekend to the anniversary of the fire. Since 2019, the first year of the event, over 21,000 plants have been planted.

“We want to help restore the Santa Monica Mountain landscape and prevent future fires by planting resilient native plants. Native plants create fire hardened landscapes and encourage pollinator activity,” the Malibu Foundation wrote. “This year, we’re also focused on conserving water as California is in its third year of the mega-drought.”

It all got started when, “after the Woolsey Fire, the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreational Area (SMMNRA) became overrun with over 300 non-native, highly flammable, invasive plant species pushing out native vegetation,” according to the the Malibu Foundation. “With the help of park staff and volunteers, an effort is being made to combat their spread to help prevent future fires and preserve the fragile ecosystem in the Malibu region.”

In a press release, Evelyn Weber, chair of the Malibu Foundation, stated “A great impact can be made by a holistic approach of private corporations, public institutions, and government coming together for a common cause.”

The National Park Service provided onsite support to educate volunteers on proper planting techniques. Seedlings are grown in the Native Plant Nursery on NPS property.

All of the event sponsors of “Re-Plant Love” are environmentally responsible companies. Clarins is a family-owned, plant-based beauty company. This year’s official shirts and hats were designed and produced by Malibu Sports Club, a local clothing brand run by two sisters, Isela and Valeria Noire, who also showed up to plant trees. Boxed Water, a company committed to reducing plastic usage, provided water. Local food trucks Tres Compas and Kalamaki provided food. The event was produced by Eventors, a local event production company; and the”hay lounge” was donated by Agoura Feed, a family-run Agoura Hills supply store, with blankets by Sundream, a small coffee and apparel company from Ventura.

Celebrity and other supporters, most with ties to Malibu, included Orlando Bloom, Josh Brolin, Melissa Reidhead, Lucas Petry, Rachel Roberts, Erin Murphy, Linda Thompson, Talia Jackson, Emma Kenney, and Blake Gray.

The Malibu Foundation was created to support the community of Malibu and its neighbors working to rebuild after the Woolsey Fire. To learn more about their initiatives or support their cause, go to https://www.themalibufoundation.org/ or www.replantlove.com .

This is just one project to help protect the fire-damaged Santa Monica Mountains from future fires. The Santa Monica Mountains Fund (SAMO Fund), the fundraising arm of the NPS, is also restoring habitat with the help of The Rewild Project nonprofit, founded by Leonardo DiCaprio with Snapchat, which aims to plant 100,000 native plants in five key areas affected by wildfires by the end of 2023.
