Frisco is offering residents a way to put their Christmas trees to good use after the holiday season, inviting people to drop off their old trees to fuel the Spontaneous Combustion bonfire in January.

On Dec. 26, the Town of Frisco will begin accepting Christmas trees at the Frisco Bay Marina dirt lot, at the corner of Summit Boulevard and Marina Road. Trees must be stripped of all lights and decorations prior to being dropped off. Only real trees will be accepted, and the tree drop off will be open 24 hours a day through 4 p.m. on Jan. 26.

The bonfire will begin at 6 p.m. on Jan. 26, with a fireworks show at 8.

Additionally, there will be chili and beverages for sale to benefit the Summit Nordic Ski Club, which has been providing access to Nordic skiing to the county’s youth for nearly 50 years.

For further information about dropping off a Christmas tree or the Spontaneous Combustion Bonfire, please contact Nora Gilbertson at or at 970-668-9132.
