Whether you’re looking for a beautiful Christmas tree in Tacoma or a day of holiday fun for the whole family, TwoFiveTrees is fast becoming a holiday staple for the South Sound. Located in Tollefson Plaza at the heart of Downtown Tacoma and is partnered with a 4,000 sf outdoor ice skating rink (Franciscan Polar Plaza), TwoFiveTrees is a unique experience like no other in Pierce County.
Also look for a 28-foot mural and a number of holiday festivities. Hot cocoa and skate rentals are available onsite as well as a number of restaurants and retail shops in walking distance. We’re excited to take part in the return of celebrating the holidays in our beloved Downtown! And with prices as low as $35 for a 5′-6′, top-quality noble (normally $60), or $20 for 5′-6′ douglas fir, we know you will be too!
Location: Tollefson Plaza, Downtown Tacoma (Moved to upper plaza this year)
Load Zone: Access our huge load zone through S. 15th and Commerce. Just one street up from Pacific, the load zone is located directly across from Two Five Tree’s upper entrance.
Dates and Times: Tree sales starting Friday, November 29th, on to the end of the season. Hours of operation for trees are 12pm – 10pm, Monday – Friday; 8am-10pm Saturday, 10am – 10pm Sunday.

Zipcar Day is on December 4th, 5-10pm. In an effort to encourage walking and cut down on the number of cars on the road, we’re teaming up with Zipcar, the nation’s premier car-sharing membership, to zip anyone home with their tree for free on during Zipcar Day. This is a promotion for folks who live within a few miles of Two Five Trees since Zipcars are only available within that zone at this time.
Downtown Resident Meet-up: Downtown on the Go and Local Life are hosting their quartlery meet-up for Downtown Residents on December 4th 6-8pm (during Zipcar Day). Click here for more info.
What: Great prices on Christmas trees in Tacoma; free candy canes and boughs; hot chocolate available on site; complimentary twine; ice skating; lots of fun events.
Trees: (Subject to stock) Noble Firs, Douglas Firs, Grand Firs, Table Top Nobles – all grown locally. Heights range from 2′ table tops to 12′ full sizes. Check blog for shipment updates and tree section for more details.
Loading/Parking: We have a load zone marked with signage on the north side of s 17th just off Pacific. It’s about a 20 yard walk from the tree area and any free attendant will be happy to help load. If the load zone is full when you arrive, Downtown Tacoma isn’t very full on the weekends (that’s why we’re doing this!) so you can usually find a decent spot within a couple blocks and then move up to the load zone when it’s time to load
Events: On Dec 1st we will be hosting a special day where customers who walked or took transit to the lot will get a free chauffeured ride home with their tree, courtesy of Zip Car. The event will run from 12pm – 6pm.
Two Five Trees and Franciscan Polar Plaza are hosting lots of interesting other interesting events like a 80′s-theme skate night, broom ball and lots of other fun stuff. Keep checking blog for details as events are scheduled and check the Polar Plaza site for an events calendar overview.
Skating: Admission $8, Skate Rentals $2.
Community: Two Five Trees is firstly about the community of Downtown Tacoma and Tacoma at large. All proceeds go to benefit the nonprofit, Local Life, whose mission is promulgating strong holistic neighborhoods and nurturing neighborhood identity. Know a family that can’t afford a tree? Write us and tell us why you think they should be a recipient of one of the trees we’re giving to families in need. But, let’s be honest, doing something, anything, in Tollefson is a community effort in itself. It’s time that Downtown and Tacoma have more feet on the street and engaged in civic centers… even if just to buy a Christmas tree.
