Colorado Springs Christmas Tree and Holiday Junk Removal

There is a pretty small window of opportunity when it comes to enjoying a freshly cut Christmas tree. Typically, most trees are first sold during Thanksgiving weekend and right up to Christmas Eve. The longer you wait to buy the tree, the longer you’ll get to enjoy it but where’s the fun in that if it has to come down right after New Years? The key is not to let your Christmas tree over stay its “welcome.” You can stretch out your time with the tree by making sure you water it every day. It should be in a stand that can hold at least a gallon of water. If you missed out on that, think ahead to next year.

The moment a tree has dried out is when it should come down. This doesn’t always mean it turns brown but when the needles start falling off in record numbers then it’s time to get rid of that tree. While there might be an opportunity to toss out the tree on your curb and have it picked up by the municipal workers, you have to make sure you get it out on the scheduled day. It’s different for each neighborhood. If you opt to get rid of your tree that way, you’ll be forced to do it on their schedule and not yours. Miss the pick-up and you’re stuck with the tree. Even if it is out of your home, it’s still a fire hazard. One missed tossed cigarette and that tree will go up in a flash. You best bet is to hire Junk King Colorado Springs to help you dispose of that tree properly.

Colorado Springs Christmas Tree Disposal

It’s a sad fact that every holiday season the chances for tragedy striking in the form of home fires increases. All good intentions aside, it’s the holiday overuse of candles, burning fireplace logs and additional electric cords that cause a lot of the problem. However, one of the big issues that is a potential hazard are the dried out Christmas trees. If you bring a live Christmas tree into your home then you are well aware of how often you need to water that tree. Although it may look fresh after a couple weeks that tree will still it dry out no matter how often you water it. A lot of that has to do with the heat in your own home that causes the moisture in the air to dry up the tree. Once you celebrated the holidays you don’t want to put off getting rid of that Christmas tree. A good rule of thumb to follow would be to take it down after the 12 days of Christmas.
While you might be familiar with the song the 12 days of Christmas you might not be aware that those 12 days actually refer to the time between December 25 and January 6. That is officially the Christmas holiday season according to church tradition. The time before December 25 is actually referred to as advent whereas those 12 days after Christmas is really the Christmas holiday. Some folks don’t like to wait that long and like to take the tree down right after New Year’s Day. That’s usually when all the lights also come down from the outside and all the ornaments are packed up.
Simply moving your Christmas tree out to the curb doesn’t mean the problem is solved. You need to make special arrangements to have that three properly disposed of. Those arrangements can come in the form of scheduling professional Colorado Springs Christmas Tree Disposal with Junk King’s specialists to show up and haul the tree straight from your home.
