Once again this year they have begun accepting reservations for their 11th Annual Christmas Tree Pick Up service. Boy Scouts from Troop 5 will pick up Christmas Trees on Sunday, Jan 2nd after 1pm and Saturday Jan 8th starting at 9am, and here's the good part,the troop will recycle them by grinding them into mulch to be used for some of their other projects.

When making a reservation online, please select a pick up date of either Sunday, Jan 2nd or Saturday Jan 8th. There is a suggested donation amount of $10 per tree, however donations in any amount are appreciated but not required.
Of course trees should be free of ornaments and left in the driveway for pick up.
Here's a little background on Troop 5:
Troop 5 is comprised of 34 local boys age 11-17. Service to the community is a central part of the Scouting program and Troop 5 Scouts participate in service projects throughout the year including Fall clean up, trail clean up, Memorial Day flag placement at local cemeteries and more. Donations collected from Christmas tree pick-ups assist the troop in purchasing needed supplies to run the program as well as assist Scouts in paying for valuable summer camp experiences. Last year more then 220 trees were collected and recycled. The troop hopes to exceed that number this year.
