2022 is our 37th year!
The Scout troops of Sammamish, WA have performed Christmas tree curbside pickup and recycling as our primary fundraiser since Christmas 1985. Your donations are a critical part of our ability to provide a quality Scouting program for local youth. We thank you for your support.
Leaving Your Tree for Curbside Pickup - The Do's
The suggested donation is $15-$25 per tree. All your donations go directly to fund the local Scouting programs here in Sammamish. This is our main fundraiser for the year and we appreciate your support! Here are the donation options:
Donate with PayPal (preferred)
Skip the check and make your tree donation online! A PayPal account is not required. Note we need your street address when making your donation. Visit our Donate with PayPal page.
Donate with a check attached to the tree
Please make check payable to "Scouts BSA". Place the check in an envelope. Place the envelope inside a Ziploc style bag to protect against rain or moisture. Attached the bag to the bottom of the tree with a rubber band. Thank you for your donation!
Please place the tree curbside in front of your residence. If that is not possible, place the tree at the nearest cross street corner. Trees need to be out by 8:00 AM Saturday thank you!
If you would prefer to drop off your tree, you may leave your tree and donation at our chipper location shown on the Bring Us Your Tree page.
For safety reasons and recycler request, we cannot accept trees with tinsel, flocked trees, trees with nails, artificial trees, wreaths with metal shape wires, or trees with any other metal attached. Also - please no trees that used a fire retardant. Thank you for understanding.
Please do NOT leave trees piled next to our signs, near dumpsters or other locations. Leave the tree curbside in front of your residence.
Missed Tree or other questions?
We must know about missed trees BY SATURDAY PLEASE! Thank you for your understanding. There is very limited pickup on Sunday. Requests any later than Sunday morning cannot be retrieved. Our apologies but the Scouts go back to school Monday and cannot collect trees after dark.
To report s missed tree, or any other questions, please Contact Us.
