CHRISTMAS trees were gone within minutes this morning after Saturday's rush, leaving some people empty handed.
There were more than 80 real Christmas trees for sale in the Bunnings car park over the weekend.
Sunrise Rotary organiser Dave O'Grady said the last three trees on sale Sunday morning were sold within 20 minutes.
"They went very quickly yesterday and we finished up at 12.30pm, with only three big trees to sell on Sunday," Mr O'Grady said.
"We had 84 trees ... the trees are particularly good this year ... the best I've had in six years.
"We were fortunate to get about 60 millimetres of rain a few weeks ago and the trees responded very well and became dense."
Mr O'Grady said the Christmas trees are brought from a rotary club in Albury and the majority of the proceeds from the sale go towards the prenatal unit at Wagga Base Hospital.
"The Wagga people are very keen to support the hospital and so the money stays in town and isn't going somewhere else," he said.
More Christmas trees will be selling again next weekend and Mr O'Grady advises people to give him a call in order to guarantee a tree.
"People were disappointed today; I had one lady drive from Cootamundra and I didn't have a tree for her," he said.
"I really encourage people to order a tree as then I can guarantee a tree for them."
Mr O'Grady is hoping another 80 trees will be available to purchase next weekend and despite it being closer to Christmas, he is hopeful that they will sell out again as they're in "incredible" condition.
