“Ours  artificial so we put it in the attic,” said Summer.

Lots of real trees get recycled, these are at the Columbia County Fire Department, they’re burned for training, and sometimes they come in without all their ornaments packed away. 

“Sometimes they still do they leave them on,” said Firefighter Austin Cooper. 

 “They leave their precious?”
