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 7, 2012! Boy Scout Troop 521 will be hosting the 16th 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.
