    How many of you do x-mas tree pick-up's and disposal, how much do you charge if you do, and how much money do you think is in it...how would u go about it- 1. Comming in and taking it down with nothing on it, then hauling away, 2. just taking from curb ect., any responses would be welcome...just thinking of ways to make a couple bucks during the winter

    That is a very good idea, although around here a tree is $50+ bucks and I don't see people paying more than that to have it delivered... maybe removed but not more than 10-15 bucks... Plus finding the tree & cutting it down is most of the fun!!

    I have never done this, but I would say that if you have just a pickup, there probably enough money in it to make it worth while. I know around here a lot of the local towns allow you to bring it to a place like the DPW or fire station for a $10 discount that goes to the fire or police guys. If you do decide to do it, I would do strictly curbside pickup. You don't want to have to deal with going in someone's house and risking breaking something. That would get ugly really fast. Just a few things to think about. Like I said, I have never even thought about this.

    I just know that if I was doing it I would break a ton of things. I could see the lawsuits coming.
