Forest Service Wants Folks To Quit Putting Christmas Decorations on Trees Leading to Sedona

AZCentral reports Coconino National Forest officials are urging people to quit putting up Christmas decorations on the trees on Arizona 179 between Oak Creek and Sedona and on Arizona 89A between Sedona and Cottonwood.

“We’re not trying to be Scrooge here, but it’s to the point that so many decorations are put up that there are a couple of problems,” said Karen Malis-Clark, a spokeswoman for the forest.

The sometimes-tasteful, sometimes-offensive decorations – tinsel, paper plates sometimes bearing alien faces, CDs and other ornaments – typically start showing up over the Thanksgiving holiday.

They frequently become windblown litter.
