EDMONTON — Christmas trees are available for free in Saskatchewan or by donation in Alberta this weekend — and it’s for a good cause.
The Nature Conservancy of Canada is hosting tree harvesting events on Saturday in central Alberta and near Saskatoon in an attempt to get rid of invasive spruce trees.
In Saskatchewan, the trees aren’t native to the Saskatoon area and their presence could actually damage the habitat for other plants and animals.
