Now is the time of year when Christmas trees will be picked up after the yearly holiday season.
A Natick Patch reader recently asked when Christmas tree removal is this year in Natick. We contacted Bill Chenard, the Director of the Department of Public Works in town to find out, and here's what he told us: "Christmas trees will be picked up during the first two weeks of January. They must be bare (i.e. no decorations, no lights, and not in a plastic bag) and placed at curbside)." So there you have it. Now is the time to get those Christmas trees out to the curb to have them hauled off.

Are you willing to withstand the cold, sap and needles necessary for an 'authentic' Christmas or will a tree in a box suffice?
The Christmas tree dilemma: Purists won't go near fake trees; others can stand the thought of chopping down a tree that will leave needles, sap and leaking water in their living room. Despite the hassle, real trees outsell their artificial cousins by more than a 3-to-1 margin each season, according to the National Christmas Tree Association. Bear in mind, of course, artificial trees can be reused every year. Are you undertaking the Griswold family tradition this year, or are will an artificial tree do the trick for your family?
