The smell of fresh pine will soon fill the air as the annual Rotary Christmas tree drive begins.
For the 6th year in a row the Wagga Sunrise Rotary Club will be selling freshly cut pine trees for the festive season, and organiser Dave O'Grady said they were expecting a big year.
"Each year it gets bigger and we have lots of return customers always," he said.
"They're always happy to pay the price for live trees and we're estimating to sell about 170-180 this year."
The trees, grown by Hume Weir Rotary, will be cut on the morning of Saturday, December 7 to be sold that day and over the weekend.
"Each year the money goes to local charity, the board haven't quite made up their mind yet as to who it will go to but in the past it has been Wagga Base Hospital," Mr O'Grady said.
"We have people come from all over the place to buy our trees, it's not unusual to see people from Temora or Young," Mr O'Grady said.
The trees will be on sale in the Bunnings car park on December 7-8 and December 14-15.
