Yours truly has developed quite a fascination with the proliferation of prodigal Christmas trees in our fine community. If the above photograph as taken by “French toast”  is any indication, it would appear I am not alone. After some consideration I have decided a project is in order. The objectives are simple enough:

  1. Document Greenpoint/north Brooklyn’s feral Christmas tree population in the hope of
  2. determining exactly how long our fellow citizens are harboring these conifers.

To my recollection the latest discarded Christmas tree I have seen was in April. Surely, we can do better than that! So, if you see an interesting feral Christmas tree please take a photograph of it, note the location and send them to me at: missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. To get everyone in the proper post-holiday spirit, here is a tree I found tied to street sign in front of Biedronka this afternoon.

Note the 24 ounce bottle of Zywiec. Nice.
