Recycle Your Christmas Tree

Yes, the tree is still beautiful and you are dreading having to take it down and pack away all of the decorations. But we are well into January and it is time. So put on some good non-Christmasy music, get out the last of the cookies and candy and just get started.

And once the tree is down, please consider the city of Tucson's TreeCycle Program.  Drop your tree off at one of 8 convenient locations and it will be ground into wood chips to be given to the public at Randolph Golf Course and Las Reales landfill. For more information including drop off locations, check out Tucson TreeCycle Program

Mortgage rates up but still relatively low

The average 30-year fixed mortgage rate was up a bit to 3.99 percent in this week’s survey, according to Freddie Mac. Although this week’s survey rate represents a five-month high, 30-year fixed mortgage rates are still below the levels at the end of last year and early part of 2017. Mortgage rates have remained relatively low all year.
