Treetime Christmas Creations in Lake Barrington is holding its annual tree trade-in program.

The store hopes to give about 400 gently-used artificial Christmas trees to needy families through the Salvation Army. People who participate can get a discount on a new tree or decorations.

People who want a new tree can donate their old ones at the store, or by calling the Salvation Army for a pickup at 1-800-SATRUCK.
