SF Christmas tree goat feeding program at limit, goats are full

SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) – A program in which San Franciscans could bring their Christmas trees to a company for goats to eat has ended for the year because the
animals are full, according to the fire department.

San Francisco fire officials announced Wednesday that Christmas tree disposal efforts with the Hunters Point-based goat landscaping business City Grazing had reached its capacity.

City Grazing officials wrote on Facebook, “Too many trees! Sorry to say, the goats are full of Christmas and refusing any more.”

The fire department is reminding residents that the city’s Christmas tree curbside collection program with Recology will run through Jan. 15.

Residents just need to place the trees at the curb next to recycling bins before 6 a.m. on regular collection days. Decorations and lights must be removed from the trees and trees taller than 6 feet must be cut in half, city officials said.

Dry Christmas trees can pose a fire hazard inside and outside of homes, according to the fire department.
