Alton Evening Telegraph Monday, Dec. 28, 19<0 A-? Many cities ban burning of Christmas trees By LOUISE COOK Associated Puss Writer Tls the season to tie Inflation conscious. And the Concern over the quality of the' atmosphere poses flrdtteTM for cities trying to dispose of thousands of Christmas trees after the holi- An Associated Press survey Aowed most cities have banned open-air burning and instead collect the trees and use them for landfill. Conservation groups in some areas have other suggestions, however. fhe Detroit cwtdoorsmen, an affiliate of the Michigan United Conservation Clubs, collects trees and hauls them to the northern part of the state for use as deer browse. The state group also suggests the trees be distributed in wooded areas for trse as covet for rabbits and other small wildlife. The Babe Ruth fitgeM Association in Salem, Mass., raises money through a tree, collection program. Members pick up trees at ft cost of so cents each, inspect them for nails and wire and turns them over to the city which puts the trees through a chipper or shredding machine td get fflulea for _______ control on the slopes in city The Missouri Department of Conservation suggests homeowners make bird-feeding stations out of the trees, anchoring them in the backyard and covering them with such things as suet and fruit. The department also says that when several trees are wired together, weighted and sunk to the bottom of a take, they make good cover for fish. In California, a spokesman for {he Sierra Club said his group had been trying to get people "to buy living trees and give them to the U.S. Forest Service after Christmas" for replanting. He acknowledged, however, that "live pine trees have been in short supply in the nurseries arid pretty expensive too. You can't ask people to buy trees that don't exist." Cincinnati's Environmental Coordinating Organization ran a similar drive and will collect the live trees and plant them in nearby open areas. Typical of many cities is New York where the sanitation department has special post-Christmas truck runs to pick up the trees which are put through a chipper, then buried at landfill sites. A department spokesman says the collection procedure takes about 10 days. Artificial trees are one solution. Ralph H u 1 s e y, superintendent of sanitation in Atlanta, estimated more, than 200,000 trees would have to be disposed of in the area, then added: "I use an artificial tree. I really think this iiili (%f% utmr zQuwrsn 137=1 ALL REMAINING STOCK: is the solution. Not only do you solve the problem of disposal, you lessen the fire hazard." There are exceptions to the antiburning rules—namely in areas where Epiphany bonfires 12 nights after Christmas are traditional. In Denver, a spokesman for the pollution board said the 12th night bonfires were considered "recreational burns" and exempt from pollution laws. Massachusetts officials told residents of Marblehead their plan to burn trees on a beach causeway in a traditional celebration was illegal. But the city Board of Health decided not to oppose the plan and a spokesman said, "If the sponsors of a 12th night program want to burn Christmas trees and greens at River Head Beach as they have for so many years, the Board of Health will let them do it." Not so in Kansas City. The director of air pollution control refused to issue a special permit for the Epiphany burning traditionally held in a city park and the Recreation Department canceled the program. • CHRISTMAS TREES AND STANDS • GIFT BOWS AND RIBBONS • BOXED CHRISTMAS CARDS • ORNAMENTS & TREE TRIMS, • FOIL & PAPER GIFT WRAP • INDOOR & OUTDOOR LITE SETS • REPLACEMENT TREE LITES • CHRISTMAS CANDY • FRUIT CAKES master charge 5 SUPER DRUG CENTERS CHARGE 323 BELLE ST.
