Holiday Tree Harvest Rescheduled Due to Storm Forecast

Reservations are full after more than 300 people have signed up for the free Marin County Parks event that removes invasive Monterey Pines from San Geronimo Valley.


Marin County Parks officials aren’t taking any chances with the intense storms forecasted for the next five days. 

They moved the department’s popular free tree harvesting event, originally scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 1, to Saturday, Dec. 8.

The rescheduling didn’t seem to bother most of the roughly 300 people who have made reservations for the event, according to Marin County Parks Natural Resource Specialist Matt Sagues.

Sagues said the department isn't taking any more reservations, but people can be added to a wait list in case there are any cancellations. “It filled up faster than I expected but we’re pleased by the potential turnout," he said. 

The event is the second annual holiday tree harvest in Marin; Last year’s harvest was a hit when more than 300 invasive Monterey Pine trees were removed at Ring Mountain in Tiburon. 

Sagues said the participants will have a mix of Monterey Pines to pick from – some have the look and shape of a Christmas tree while others would be better suited for greenery and wreaths, he said.
