This year, the scouts will pick up trees Dec. 27, 31 and Jan. 8. They ask for a donation of $12 or more for their services.

Residents with a West Linn address can sign up to have their tree picked up by visiting the troop website (, emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or calling 503-966-5971.

"This is our troop's only fundraiser and helps fund important scout events throughout the year," the troop website noted.

The scouts ask those using the pickup service to have their tree in front of their house before 9 a.m. on their scheduled day of pick up.
