Question

Have you'll thought about doing Christmas tree haul-off's. It wouldn't be bad if you had a trailer that you could stack them and had many in the same area. I just thought this wouldn't be a bad idea, because alot of people hate having to dispose of the trees after the holiday. Maybe charge $20 dollars a tree and I have free disposal location.

Depends on your area, town picks up and recycles here. Kinda puts a crimp in your idea around here anyway..

well in my area they have a place where you can take and recycle them, but they don't have city pickup. I just thought that wouldn't be a bad idea if you could get enough trees

If you can make money at it, why not. I don;t know that I would purchase a trailer right away, but it may be something that will really take off for you. If people are still using real trees, you have a recycling center, and the means to move them, sounds like the money tree maybe waiting to be picked.
