Thanks Patch. Dummy me I was actually looking at the BC website (http://www.baltimorecountymd.gov/News/holiday_winter/treecollection.html) and didn't realize it hadn't been updated since 2010. My tree has been outside for a couple of days now.

What a waste! Seems to me like the best sort of recycling would be to buy a live tree and then plant it in your garden.when the holidays are over...

M yes it seems sad for the trees but unless you have a farm no one has room for years and years worth of trees. The good thing with the reycling program is that you can come back in the spring and get the mulch for free!

Jan 14-19 is not two weeks! Am I missing something? "Baltimore County residents with live Christmas trees can start setting them out for recycling on Jan. 14. The trees will be collected over a two-week period, according to a county news release. They must be out on the front curb or street no later than Jan. 19."

Sam, The release reads that the collection will take place over a two-week period but to ensure collection, trees should be out no later than Jan. 19.

If we are going to kill a perfectly good tree -- must we be so eager to throw it away right after Christmas? January 14th as a start is reasonable but the 19th as an end date is too early. Hey, if you can put up Christmas decorations on November 1st, I can leave some of mind up until February 1st when it's cold and snowy out and the natural tree might still be nice looking and not shedding too much. I've seen a lot of people who make Valentine's Trees and when I was in New Orleans I saw people had Mardi Gras Trees..basically changing the decorations in both cases on their Christmas trees. What you do is of course up to you but perhaps we should have periodic tree/natural recycling year round...

Gregg, the longer it is up, the more of a fire hazard it becomes.
