You’re thinking, “There’s got be an easier way.”

There is. The Hood River Lions Club has a simple solution for you: Set your tree by the curb before 10 a.m. on Jan. 5, and club members will pick it up sometime that day and get rid of it for you. There’s no charge for the service but the club will welcome donations.
