Tree service collects Christmas trees for disposal

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - The Snake River Tree Service collected Christmas trees in the D.L. Evans Bank parking lot in Twin Falls Saturday.

This was all part of a partnership established eight years ago with the United Way to help out the community.

A foreman with the company said they had a pretty good turnout, collecting at least 25 trees.

"Seems like as soon as the signs went up, everybody started bringing in their trees," said David Dumas, foreman with the Snake River Tree Service.

People could dispose of their tree free of charge for a good cause.

"The trees are going to get chipped up, basically turned into mulch and then we'll take the much down and dump it off for either the Magic Valley Master Gardeners — they use it for recycle in their gardens — or any other individual that usually will want it," Dumas said.

Despite the free service, they accepted donations that benefit the United Way.
