Local Boy Scouts will be picking up Christmas trees throughout Lodi today for the 27th year.
The troops will collect the trees starting at 9 a.m. Residents are asked to put trees on the curb and consider donating money to the boys when they knock on the door. The tree pickup is a major fundraiser for the Scouts.
If you will not be home but would still like to donate, checks can be made out to Boy Scouts of America, Christmas Tree Pickup, P.O. Box 21, Acampo, CA 95220.
After the Boy Scouts collect the trees, Waste Management will recycle them.
