It's back to work and school this week after the holiday break, and firefighters are urging you to take down your Christmas tree before it becomes a danger to you and your family.
Firefighters say trees dry out and become a fire hazard even when you move them outside to your garage or backyard. They recommend disposing of your tree as soon as it's removed from your home.
You can drop your tree off at the dump, have it turned into mulch or donate it to the state parks department.
