Quick update- not sure if they do this in other states or not, but the Seattle Ikea has Christmas trees this weekend for $20. You “rent” the tree, bring it back to the store the 1st weekend of January and they will mulch it and send the mulch to parks in the area. When you return the tree, you get a $10 Ikea Gift Card. Pretty sweet deal, eh? Check it out to see if it’s in your neighborhood!
