— Boys Scouts from Troop 7236 unload freshly cut Fraser fir Christmas trees at the corner of East Limestone and Capshaw Roads in eastern Limestone County. Above, Life Scout Matthew Brannan, right, and Scout Sam AuBuchon unload trees for display. The troop is selling the trees now through Dec. 18 for $25 to $110, depending on size. Proceeds from the troop’s sixth-annual sale will be used to buy camping equipment.
