Avenue B is the place to be for discarded Christmas trees today... Salim hit the daily double jackpot ... at Sixth Street (above!) ... then Seventh Street...
Dave on 7th also spotted the tree on B and Seventh...
And just 244 days to Christmas Eve!

Countdown to MulchFest 2021!

[Photo by Steven]

This weekend, someone dropped off a small Christmas tree at the site of the annual MulchFest in Tompkins Square Park.

Perhaps the resident wanted to make space in the apartment for the Halloween decorations.

By the way, NYC Parks recycled a record 48,230 trees during Mulchfest 2020. The previous record was 30,226 trees in 2014, per this news release. Well, here's one for 2021.

Spring Cleaning continues... and more people apparently feel as if it's time to toss the Christmas tree... EVG reader Melissa spotted this one today on Third Street between Avenue A and Avenue B...

Thanks to Simon Dumenco for sharing these photos today from St. Mark's Place between Avenue A and First Avenue... as he correctly notes: "It’s Easter Sunday, so it’s time for the traditional sacrificing of the Christmas trees."

Have to make room in the apartment for all the eggs...

Spotted today on Avenue A today between 11th Street and 12th Street... with the April issue of Mojo (featuring "guest editor" Keith Richards) as the means for authentification.

An EVG reader shares this festive holiday discovery on Fourth Street at Avenue B.

It's not known at the moment if the person (or people!) who discarded the tree also tossed the broken Portable Tailgating Table.

On the occasion of this Earth Day, someone apparently decided it was time to toss the holiday/Christmas tree ... as spotted by EVG regular Pinch this morning on First Avenue between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place.

Happy Earth Day!

EVG reader Emily Mauney spotted this rather sprightly tree discarded on Avenue B and Second Street earlier today ... and sooo close to Earth Day... and Memorial Day...

[Updated] April 29

Spotted near the 9th Precinct on East Fifth Street this evening.

Despite the lack of a newspaper to vouch for the date, we spotted Officer Tubbs leaving the station house... and he verified the sighting...


Further proof comes via EVG reader Carol Puttre, who also spotted the tree...


All of this is moot... because we spotted this one today on East Fourth Street near Second Avenue...

Someone yesterday along East 14th Street decided that it was time to toss the xmas tree and the hammock. Two unwanted seasonal items taken care of at one time.

Spotted by James and Karla Murray.

Speaking of resurrections ... spotted this on St. Mark's Place today. Plenty of green left in this one. Why someone is throwing it out now is baffling. This year's winner receives a bottle of Dom Pérignon rosé (1962 vintage).

Easter Sunday

Well, while walking toward East River Park late this afternoon… we spotted this scene on Avenue C … a woman pushing a fake Xmas tree… We have nothing to prove that this actually happened today and not, say, Dec. 28. (Though it was likely snowing then!) Maybe take our word for it?

Yes. St. Mark's Place and Second Avenue this morning. With the stand intact, as the arrows helpfully point out.

EVG reader Andrew, who took the photo, asked if the prize would be given out in bitcoins.

No, it will not be given out in bitcoins.

Also, the ICTTSS wanted to recognize EVG readers Craig and Caelyn for spotting this beaut on April 7 (suspiciously) next door to the 9th Precinct on East Fifth Street...

Season's Greetings

As we head into the Easter holiday season, we just wanted to stop and wish all of you a Merry Christmas.

EV Grieve reader Steven took this last evening around 6:30 on Avenue C at Ninth Street...

As he admits, "I didn't have a daily newspaper so I used one of the free ones from the box down the block. I took a close-up of the date too, for verification."

Resourceful in the opinion of this reporter.

Gruber MacDougal, spokesperson for the International Coalition of Tree Tossing in the Spring (ICTTS), is said to be monitoring the situation from the Centre for International Climate and Environmental Research, Oslo, where he is finalizing a white paper on the carbon content of international trade since 1990.

Just the other day, EV Grieve reader Riian submitted a fine entry ... However, some of you vicious bastards people weren't impressed since the thing was in a pot.

So, Riian strikes again on Sixth Street between Avenue A and Avenue B...

This should certainly please the judges, though as a neutral observer, I cannot speak for the International Coalition of Tree Tossing in the Spring (ICTTS). Via text, ICTTS spokesperson Gruber MacDougal, currently in London preparing for the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, wrote, "Hi Grieve. TY 4t note. We'll ck out this Ntry. meanwyl, mrry xmas in April."

Here we are on East Sixth Street between Avenue A and Avenue B... where Riian caught what may or may not be leftover from the Dec. 25 holiday. Still, Riian adhered to the strict ICTTS-sanctioned rules and had the thing in the pot tree photographed with the Sunday Times...

We reached out to Gruber MacDougal, chief spokesperson of the International Coalition of Tree Tossing in the Spring (ICTTS), for reaction. However, he was en route to a ICTTS corporate retreat on Sveti Stefan Island in Montenegro and unavailable for comment.
