What Does a Teenage Christmas Tree Remover do?
As a Christmas tree remover, you will disassemble Christmas trees for customers. You will first remove all the decoration from the Christmas tree, split the tree into more smaller parts, and dispose of the tree for your customer. Basically, you will be getting rid of a Christmas tree that is taking up space in someone’s house for them. And in return, they will pay you. One other cool thing about this job is that you can actually take the Christmas tree wood after you cut it up and sell that as well. Your responsibilities are to remove the Christmas tree, market your services, and maintain good customer relations.
How Much Does a Teenage Christmas Tree Remover Get Paid?
As a teenage Christmas tree remover, you can expect to earn $10-$20 per tree that you remove. This will depend on how much decor is on the Christmas tree, and the size of the Christmas tree. You won’t charge the same amount for a huge Christmas tree that is 12 feet tall as you would a tiny 6” tree that can easily be removed. One of the main problems of being a Christmas tree remover is that it is very seasonal. The only time people will need your service is at the end of Christmas, so you won’t be able to do this work year-round. And even then, most people will choose to remove it by themselves as it is quite simple. But even so, with the proper marketing strategies, you will still be able to find the people who need your services.

When disposing of the Christmas tree, check in with your local state or city to see their requirements for throwing out Christmas trees. You may even have to drive down to a garbage collection center to manually dispose of the tree, just make sure to include that in the price.
