Many around town may have already stripped their Christmas trees of its decorations and thrown them out of the house. Others may be planning on tearing down their trees this upcoming weekend. But most may be asking, what next?

Bring your unwanted, dead, and dried up trees to Mack’s Apples this Saturday, January 5, 2013! Boy Scout Troop 521 will be hosting the 17th annual Tree Burn. The troop will be accepting trees from 9 AM until 4 PM behind the Mack’s Apples Farm Market. As soon as the trees have been collected and stacked into a mountain, they will be set ablaze.

During the Tree Burn, the scouts will be selling refreshments like chili, hot dogs and hot cocoa. Sledding and other fun winter activities will be held throughout the day.

Tree Burn Highlights:

  • Trees will be collected from 9 AM until 4 PM, Saturday, January 5
  • Sledding and other winter activities during the day
  • Tree Burn to begin around 5 PM

While not required, the Boy Scouts will be accepting a small compensation for their hard work. After all, they will be unloading the trees from cars and stacking them into the giant mountain that will burn. In the past, the Tree Burn has brought around 500 trees to be burned.
