Wondering what to do with your old Christmas tree? The Burnaby-based Wildlife Rescue Association of B.C. is looking for donations of used trees to help injured or orphaned animals.
Staff and volunteers at the association use the trees to create a more natural setting in the pens where animals recover.
"A comfortable environment is an important part of the rehabilitation process for the animals in our care," said the association's Linda Bakker in a media release. "By donating a tree, members of the public will help us to create home away from home for our wild patients."
The association is looking for trees stripped of all decorations, including tinsel, as they can be choking hazards.
Trees can be dropped off any day of the week, starting Jan. 3, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The centre is at 5216 Glencarin Dr., close to Burnaby Lake.
