Tree Collection Wraps Up

to the people from the Portland Metro area who made the effort to drop off their Christmas trees and help fund the 2013 TVTU Ecocycle Project!! Some trees arrived from Tualatin and Wilsonville - even a 
few visitors from other states contributed!

We handled over 500 trees from the public over the 3 weekends!
And a total of nearly 800 overall.

Thanks also to our gracious hosts for allowing our drop sites:

 And finally a special and grateful thank you to our volunteers who spent part of their weekends, sometimes multiple, working the various drop sites and collecting and stowing the trees in preparation for placement!!!!

Andy Andrews, John Arnold, John Burger, Peter Gray, Michael Ellis, Mike Gentry, Rod Lundgren, Alan Moore, Greg Munsell, Jon Pampush, Jeff Price, Mark and Janet Rogers, Bill Schoen, and Scott Schoen.

A big thank you to these volunteers, without whom this project would not have been possible.

We'll need more help next year so think about setting aside a few hours to help staff a drop site!
