LANE COUNTY, Ore. -- Boy Scout Troop 182 kicked off its largest annual fundraiser Saturday.

“We are picking up Christmas trees for our troop to fundraise money,” Boy Scout Eric Amacher said.

Community members have until January 31st to schedule pickups, and the trees are then taken to Lane Forest Products, so they are not wasted.

If you live in Eugene, Springfield, Junction City or the surrounding areas, the troop can come to you on any weekend and certain weekdays.

The fundraiser helps further the scouting program.

“We all go to camp together, and teach other people once we’ve mastered those skills,” Boy Scout Aaron Lamie said.

There’s a minimum of 10 dollars requested for small trees under 10 feet, 15 dollars for medium trees between 10-15 feet and 25 dollars for large trees over 15 feet.

Your tree must be left outside by 7 a.m. on your pickup day.

You can pay online, mail your check or leave it under your mat.
