Holiday Tree Collection

Pine Tree

The City of Woodstock offers a convenient curbside Holiday Tree Collection for one week in the month of January. Trees must be placed at the curb before the Monday of our collection week and not on your garbage and recycling collection day. Depending on weather, our staff can usually have all trees picked up before mid week.

Curbside Schedule begins week of January 9-13, 2023


  • Place Christmas trees in a visible area within 1m or 3ft from the curb
  • Place trees out before 7:00 a.m. the Monday of the collection week
  • Keep trees out of the snow and on top of snow piles
  • Be mindful when there is snow events or blowing slow. Keep your tree visible and accessible
