California Backyard, a local company which specializes in selling high performance outdoor products, will kick off its eighth annual “Give-A-Tree” Christmas tree donation collection, starting November 4. The four California Backyard stores in the Sacramento region (Elk Grove, Rancho Cordova, Roseville and Sacramento) will collect any donated artificial Christmas trees from customers until December 17.

All of the donated trees will be distributed to families receiving Christmas assistance from The Salvation Army of Sacramento County and South Placer County. Last year, more than 600 trees were distributed, and since 2009, more than 4000 trees have been collected because of the campaign.

For each customer who donates an artificial Christmas tree, California Backyard will give an additional 10% off the sale price of a pre-lit Everfresh tree. All stores will accept tree donations, but the tree itself must be in a box with no missing parts.
