---- — BEVERLY — You can buy your Christmas tree and contribute to a good cause all at the same time this year at the Beverly Tree Farm.

The farm, at 300 Dodge St. in North Beverly, is donating all of this year’s Christmas tree sales profits to Direct Relief for Typhoon Haiyan, a fund for victims of the recent disaster in the Philippines.

Beverly Tree Farm is run by the Bertolon family, which bought the farm from the Johnson family in 1999. It has given more than $60,000 to local charities from its Christmas tree sales in the last three years.

Tree sales will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 29; Saturday, Nov. 30; Sunday, Dec. 1; Saturday, Dec. 7; and Sunday, Dec. 8.
