Christmas Tree Drop-Off

Dec 26, 2020-Jan 31, 2021 (Past event)

In lieu of the popular annual Spontaneous Combustion event, cancelled this year in consistency with Summit County Public Health orders, the Town of Frisco is accepting Christmas trees at the Frisco Bay Marina through 4:00 pm on Sunday, January 31, 2021.

  • Trees may be dropped off at the Frisco Bay Marina dirt lot (B1) at the corner of Summit Boulevard/Highway 9 and Marina Road.
  • Trees must be stripped of all lights, tinsel, garland, tree stands and decorations prior to drop off.
  • This year the trees will be chipped and repurposed, and only real trees will be accepted. Please appropriately discard other materials such as building supplies, packaging, or pallets.
  • The tree drop-off is open 24 hours a day.

Spontaneous Combustion

 The annual Spontaneous Combustion Community Bonfire will not take place in 2021. This event is a community celebration, featuring a bonfire, food and music, cleverly disguised as an appropriate way to dispose of Christmas trees after the holiday season. Spontaneous Combustion is also an important fundraiser benefitting the Summit Nordic Ski Club, one of Colorado’s top ski clubs offering programs for young athletes to develop fitness, confidence and skills in a team-based environment.  In honor of cancelling the event for the health and safety of our community, we are encouraging people to make a donation to the Summit Nordic Ski Club at We hope to celebrate Spontaneous Combustion again in 2022.
