Be Safe

There are numerous fires caused by Christmas trees and other holiday decor every year in the United States. Here are some fire prevention tips to keep you, your family, pets, and your home safe.

  1. Choose a tree with fresh, green needles that do not
    fall off when touched.
    • Before placing the tree in the stand, cut 2” from the base of the trunk.
    • Make sure the tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, like fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents, or lights.
    • Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit.
    • Add water to the tree stand. Be sure to add water daily.
    • Use lights that are listed by a qualified testing laboratory. Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use.
    • Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Read the manufacturer’s instructions for the number of light strands to connect.
    • Never use lit candles to decorate the tree.
    • Always turn off the Christmas tree lights before leaving home or going to bed.
    • Get rid of the tree after Christmas or when it is dry. Dried-out trees are a fire danger and should not be left in the home or garage, or placed outside against the home.
    • Bring outdoor electrical lights inside after the holidays to prevent hazards and make them last longer.

Dispose Responsibly

The City of Marshfield asks that all wire, stands, and plastic wrappings are removed before a Christmas tree is placed at the curb or they will not be picked up. Christmas trees will be picked up separately from garbage during designated collection weeks (TBD). Christmas wreaths should be set out with the regular refuse items and will be picked up with garbage collection.

City of Marshfield residents may also drop off cleared Christmas trees seven days a week at the compost site located at 18th Street and Hume Avenue, Marshfield, WI. There is no charge for disposal.

Check the City of Marshfield Public Works site for updates.
