Stamford picking up Christmas trees

Crews in Stamford are out this week picking up Christmas trees.

Officials say the Stamford Department of Operations has been so busy with snow cleanup, they have not been able to devote the usual number of crews to collecting all the Christmas trees.

They say they were further delayed by having to clear away ice and snow from the city's 15,000 storm drains to minimize flooding during last week's heavy rains.
