March 26

Given yesterday's record-breaking temperatures for the date... perhaps someone thought it was time to discard their Christmas tree a mere three months from the big day. 

EVG reader 8E shared the above pic from last night on Astor Place and Broadway. 

In this era of disinformation, deep fakes and alternate trees, 8E did attempt to verify the date of the find, though could only secure a paper from March 25.

March 12, part II

When the temps get above 60, it must become a good time to toss the ol' Chrsitmas tree ... Wheezy tracked this one down on 11th Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue today... way to go Wheezy!

March 12

As seen on Ninth Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue... photo by Steven... 

And don't forget to spring forward this weekend.

EVG reader Erin spotted this wee tree today on Second Avenue and Third Street... doesn't look as if it takes up much room — why not keep it up year round...?

First Avenue and First Street today. The reader who shared the photo wasn't sure if the tree was discarded or just waiting for the M15.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!



A reader spotted this today on Avenue C and East Second Street... While it seems a little cruel and careless to toss a tree like this, it also gives us a good idea for our next tree stand...

Have tree - will travel (next stop, Christmas Town?)



EVG reader Andréa Stella spotted this strapped atop a Chinook RV here along East 14th Street near Avenue A...technically not a discarded holiday tree given that it's still atop a Chinook RV (hey, I didn't create the rules — just interpreting them)...

If this helps...

March 14 (and March 13)



Yesterday morning, we noted the mound of trash that erupted on St. Mark's Place near Third Avenue.

We were so busy focusing on the two basketballs and partially thawed frozen waffles in the trash ... we somehow missed the holiday tree tossed in with everything else...



Since then, several readers have noted the tree...



By late this afternoon, the tree was alleged to be drunk...

March 28



EVG reader Andrew spotted this beaut this morning on East Third Street between Avenue A and Avenue B...

While we mentioned the lack of any time stamp to prove that this is from today and not, say, Dec. 26 (is it? Please say no!)... we are allowing this one to stand, so to speak.

You see, under Evidence Rule 901, photographs are typically admitted as demonstrative evidence to illustrate discarded holiday/Christmas trees. When used purely as demonstrative evidence, legal issues regarding authentication are somewhat relaxed so long as a competent witness can testify that the photograph fairly and accurately depicts the tree about which he or she is submitting.

Avenue B and Sixth Street. (Your move, Brooklyn.)

[Updated]

And just like that... One More Folded Sunset comes across a fire hazard tree in Brooklyn today....

March 23


Spotted by EV Grieve reader David Goodwin, a Third Street resident, last night on Second Avenue next to Heart of India.

Despite the lack of a newspaper cover for authentication purposes, the International Coalition of Tree Tossing in the Spring (ICTTS) will allow this tree to enter this year's competition. Why? According to one ICTTS official: "Anyone who stopped in last night's weather to take a photo deserves to be in the running to become America's next last Christmas tree thrown away for the year."

Out of season


EV Grieve correspondent Bobby Williams spotted this rolling ad on Avenue A this weekend...

Merry Ash Wednesday!



Speaking of the holidays, people around here don't seem to care much about this tree-tossing in March stuff. Our friends from One More Folded Sunset note this today in Park Slope:



And it includes the ICTTS-sanctioned front page as proof of its authenticity.

ICTTS officials disqualify this tree from competition


Thanks to EV Grieve reader Rob D. for the above photo of this poor thing spotted during the weekend on Avenue A between First Street and Second Street.

However, since receiving this photo, officials at the International Coalition of Tree Tossing in the Spring (ICTTS) said that we cannot include this tree in this year's competition. An official said there is a little-known codicil in the ICTTS constitution that mandates trees must still have 75 percent of its branches intact to qualify.
