Christmas Tree Safety Tips
Once you get your Christmas Tree home, make a fresh cut across the tree’s base and immediately place in water. Keep the tree’s water container full at all times, checking the water level daily.
Be extra careful with electricity, all open flames and other heat sources during the holidays.
Check all Christmas Tree lights, other electric decorations and electrical appliances for wear (frayed cords, for example). Do not use lights, decorations or appliances with worn electrical cords. Use only UL approved electrical decorations and extension cords.
Place the Christmas Tree well away from heat registers, space heaters, fireplaces, wood stoves, televisions, computer monitors and other heat sources.
Place the Christmas Tree clear of doors to keep the emergency escape route clear of trees, packages and furniture.
Unplug tree lights and other decorations when out of the room or sleeping.
We're sorry but registration for our Christmas Tree Pick Up has Closed.
Crews will begin picking up trees from registered residents at 10 a.m. on Sunday, January 6—keep in mind that it will take several hours to collect all of the trees, and in some cases, multiple trips into your neighborhood, so if you don’t see anyone right away at 10 a.m., please be patient (in 2018 we finished after 1 p.m.).
In the event we miss your tree, please call or text (862) 263-0180 and be sure to include your name and address within your message, if we can confirm your registration we will dispatch someone to retrieve your tree as soon as practical.
