Not only will Dover baseball take the hassle out of tree removal, but they will also put the tree to good use. All trees are collected and brought to Tendercrop Farm for their annual Celebration of Dover bonfire, according to a Facebook post from Dover baseball.

To have Dover baseball collect your tree, a registration form must be filled out by January 3. That registration form can be found here.

In Portsmouth, Christmas trees are routinely accepted curbside by the city from December 28 to mid-January on the same day trash and/or recyclables are gathered. Christmas trees can also be brought to the Portsmouth Recycling Center.

You should never burn your Christmas tree in a fire place or wood stove. If you choose to keep your Christmas tree up, be sure to water it regularly to prevent it from drying out and becoming a fire hazard.

In any case, be sure to remove all ornaments, lights, tinsel, etc. from the tree before placing it for pick-up. Any non-organic decoration or addition to the tree should be removed, including the tree stand.

It should also be noted that these services only apply to live trees, not artificial trees.
