Leaving Your Tree for Curbside Pickup - The Do's Street SignPlease place your donation in the envelope that was attached to your flyer.  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! Please make checks payable to "BSA".

Seal the envelope and place it on the bottom of the tree with a rubber band.  Also please consider putting the envelope inside a small ziploc bag in bad weather.

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 before 8:00 AM before pickup begins.

If you would prefer to drop off your tree, you may leave your tree and donation at our chipper location shown on the Drop Off Chipper page.

The Don'ts

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 - NEW FOR 2018 - please no trees that used a fire retardant. Thank you for your 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.
