I always feel so sad for the old trees. When I was little I would cry when we got rid of them.

How sad! I hate seeing them being tossed. :(

Lauren said...

Yep, it surely is :) I'm already wishing for spring!

Amy said...

That poor tree, it looks so sad being a castoff... :)

So sad. You won't see that in the country side where I live. TFS!

Sharon said...

LOL! I forgot about that. We have few live trees down here b/c they are SO expensive and they don't last.

Kelly said...

Poor tree's.... LOL

I'm with Cari--I feel sad for those poor trees, too. They had such a brief moment of glory...

So true! It is kind of a sad sight, but makes a nice picture!

Steph said...

LOL! Once I was driving to take out tree to the drop spot and when I got there it wasn't in the back of my truck, it had flown out on the way into town. It still makes me laugh.

Great pics!

Jo said...

we always have a fake tree, I always vow that "next year, I'll have a real tree" and I never do - this makes me feel a little bit better for not getting a real one! ;-P

I actually hate that, but it's a good symbol of the new year. I just feel for all the trees, although I know a majority of them were grown for that purpose.

Becky said...

In my case, you would see that on my front lawn. :-D

Liz said...

The nature lover in me shudders to see this... and the cleaning lady in me rejoices. Hmmmm I might have issues. :)

Gypsy Girl said...

So true. I hope they recycle them.

bugg said...

Poor trees. Great capture.

Tori said...

LOL! I saw a truck full of them being carted off to be recycled yesterday morning.
