Solvang Fired Up for Annual Christmas Tree Burn

Solvang will conclude its annual Julefest Celebration with the traditional Christmas Tree Burn event on Friday, Jan. 9.

The burn is sponsored by the City of Solvang Parks & Recreation Department and supervised by the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

Solvang's annual Christmas Tree Burn is held on the fields of Old Mission Santa Inés at 1760 Mission Drive. In addition to the tree burn, the Fire Department will give the public a fire safety demonstration addressing the dangers of Christmas tree fires before the pile is ignited. There will also be live music, a food truck and other concessions.

The event starts at 5 p.m. People are encouraged to arrive early.

All area residents are invited to bring their tree (stands and ornaments must be removed) to the burn pile beginning Tuesday, Dec. 30. For more information, call the City of Solvang at 805.688.5575.

The Santa Barbara County Fire Department strongly advises that people do not attempt to burn their own Christmas trees. Christmas trees can be disposed of properly by bringing them to an event like this or recycled in a green waste container.

— Capt. David Sadecki is a public information officer for the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
