Venture Crew 1208 and Boy Scout Troop 1208, out of Olympia, are coming to Yelm and Rainier Sunday, Jan. 6, to pick up used Christmas trees between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.

To schedule a tree pick-up, send an email to and a representative of the crew/troop with send a short form to fill out.

Once the form is returned, the scouts will arrive at the address listed on the form to pick up the tree as scheduled.

So all a person has to do is schedule a tree for a pick-up and then leave the tree outside their house for the scouts to come get it.

There is a suggested donation of $15 per tree.
