    In Columbus, Ohio there is a real problem because the city announced that they will not be picking up christmas trees this year which has in turn made people litter them on freeway sides and in apartment dumpsters which is a hassle now many people say they won't buy a real tree in 2010 which is a bad deal for tree vendors. Thanks alot to the city leaders for helping the economy because its going to cost more to clean up the city now:nono:

    Up here you can take your christmas trees to the park and they will take them and grind them up and use them for the walking trails in the park, but people would be too lazy to take them instead of putting on the curb.

    Light them on fire. It will be good entertainment for 30 seconds.
