Deck the Trees

Deck The Trees
Hosted by the Monte Vista Hotel
10th Anniversary

This year’s Deck The Trees, which benefits the Swannanoa Valley Christian Ministry Fuel Fund, will be unlike anything Black Mountain and Swannanoa have ever experienced. Why? Because we are in the middle of a pandemic! But pandemic or not, winter is coming. Pandemic or not, the need is great.

2020 has presented us all with heartbreak and unforeseen obstacles, but together we have risen to the challenge. The Monte Vista Hotel is excited to once again present Deck The Trees to the Black Mountain community.

Deck The Trees, 2020, will be celebrated at the Monte Vista Hotel AND in stores and businesses throughout Black Mountain. Yes, there will still be festivities and 15 glorious trees at the Monte Vista Hotel. This year, the 10th Anniversary year of Deck The Trees, there will also be 19 beautifully decorated trees throughout the community of Black Mountain and Swannanoa.

All the trees will be decorated around the theme, And A Star Appeared. So, look for a STAR in the windows of stores and businesses to indicate that inside is a whimsical, wonderfully decorated tree.

Every cent, every dollar raised through Deck The Trees benefits the Fuel Fund of the Swannanoa Valley Christian Ministry (SVCM). As you visit the trees in person or explore them on this website, pick out two or three of your favorite trees and make a donation in person at each tree’s collection box. Or send a check made out to SVCM and mark it for Deck The Trees. The address is SVCM, P.O. Box 235, Black Mountain, NC 28711. To donate on-line please go to, click on menu, events, Deck The Trees.

We hope these trees will bring warmth, light, and joy to you as we close out 2020 and as we all work to help keep our sisters and brothers warm.
