2022-23 Tree Pickup Campaign
Our campaign is now closed. Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our Newtown and Sandy Hook neighbors, this was a record year for donations.

Thank you for supporting Troop 270 of Newtown
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Newtown! Once again, our Troop 270 scouts will be collecting trees throughout Newtown and Sandy Hook. This is an important fundraising campaign that allows the scouts to raise funds they can use for scouting events such as summer camp tuition and fees for leadership training or high adventure trips. As the costs of membership and activities continue to rise, fundraisers like this help ease the burden on the scouts and their families. To have a friendly and helpful Boy Scout from Troop 270 pick up your Christmas tree and or wreath after the holiday, please sign up above by selecting your desired donation level. Scroll down further to learn more about how your tree donation will benefit a local conservation project.
By donating your Christmas Tree, you are not just supporting the scouts of Troop 270 but you are also helping the environment. About 1/3 of the trees are provided to the Candlewood Valley Trout Unlimited organization. CVTU uses the trees to line the banks of local streams to stabilize the banks and prevent erosion. The balance of the trees are chipped at the Newtown Transfer Station to provide free mulch to town residents. Continue scrolling down to learn about our generous partners in this important program.
