 City crews will pick up holiday trees beginning Dec. 30, 2013, through Jan. 31, 2014.
This five-week window providesresidents the flexibility to take downtheir trees when it is convenient.
Trees will be picked up on the same day of the week asresidents’ normal refuse and recycling.
All trees should be placed on theparkway, in between the street and the sidewalk.
