Danger Ranger’s Annual Post-Yule Pyre Christmas Tree Beach Burn

Post Yule Pyre

Christmas is over, so you know what that means. It’s time to grab a dead Christmas tree and join the Friends of the Rootless Forest for Danger Ranger’s Annual Post-Yule Pyre this Saturday, January 5th. Here are my photos from last year.

An annual San Francisco tradition occurs at this time of the year, when the last stand of sidewalk fir trees is logged by the Friends of the Rootless Forest and then piled up on the beach for some very rapid composting. Saturday, January 5th, meet at the Carousel Diner, 2750 Sloat Blvd at 7:00 PM. Look for the giant Doghead in the middle of the street. We’ll hang out for half an hour and then head west, using caution, stealth and tom-foolery to avoid the white tiger that prowls the Great Highway. Bring a christmas tree and libations. No glass containers on the beach, you assume the risk, no one is in charge, your mileage may very. And for those who are infused with gift-giving guilt and holiday cheer, carbon credits can be purchased to offset the footprint of our dedication to christmas consumption.
