How to Order

A Troop 11 Charity Fundraiser Since 1972!

Troop 11's traditional fundraiser, the Alameda Christmas Tree pickup, kicks off in late fall. Scouts will contact long-time customers the week prior to Thanksgiving. You will also find us at locations across the island of Alameda during the holiday season.

The money goes to our troop to fund troop activities and purchase needed equipment and gear. On January 7, 2017, Scouts will span out over the island and collect Christmas Trees for recycling. Supplementing the efforts of Alameda County Industries, trees recycled through Troop 11 are returned to Alameda as mulch for the Alameda Point Collaborative. 

​Started in 1972 as an Eagle project, by Hal Zecher Jr., the Annual Christmas Tree Pickup has become an Alameda tradition. The Annual Tree Pickup/Recycling is a project of Troop 11.
