Troop 89 to pick up Christmas Trees

Medfield Boy Scout Troop 89 is pleased to announce it will pick up Christmas Trees after the holiday on December 30th, and January 6th.

Not only will Troop 89 pick up Christmas Trees, but it will also take away wreaths and other greenery. It is the Troop's 28th year of providing this service. This year, Medfield residents will have a choice of where our scouts donate their trees. Trees purchased from Lovells, Medfield Lions, Bubbling Brook Nursery, Hope Still, Volante Farms, and Dover Legion can be donated to Unity Farm Sanctuary in Sherborn, MA. Unity Farm Sanctuary provides lifetime care for a population of ill, disabled, senior, orphaned, or otherwise surrendered farmed animals and humanitarian education programs. 

Trees donated to Unity Farm Sanctuary are used as a special treat for many of the animals. If you have a tree that is eligible to be donated to Unity Farm, and you would like to elect to have it donated to the farm please be sure to sign up for Unity Farm pick-up when you register. Trees not eligible for Unity farm or marked for general pick up will be taken to the Medfield Transfer station or brought to some local wooded areas, per land owner request, that wild animals will use as habitats. 

"Picking up Christmas Trees is as much of a tradition for Troop 89 as the holiday itself," said Jim Hatch, Troop 89 Scoutmaster. "Last year, we picked up over 730 trees, another record year for us. We look forward to providing this service again this holiday season."

The suggested donations are -- $23 for a large tree, one over 10 feet tall, $18 for a tree under 10 feet tall, and $6 for wreaths. The suggested donation for trees headed to Unity Farm Sanctuary is $25. This fundraiser helps fund many of Troop 89's activities for the year. 

"Community service and doing good works is the cornerstone of the scouting program. Troop 89 has a long history of doing good work in Medfield. The costs of scouting have increased in recent years, and your donations help us keep scouting affordable for anyone who wishes to participate." said Scoutmaster Hatch. "With the community's continued support, we should be able to fund our program, offset the costs of scouting, and offer financial assistance to scouts who need it."
