Treecycle Your Christmas Tree in NYC

Image placeholder title

Resolving to go greener in 2011? Start with your tree. Thanks to the Treecycle program you can turn your tree into mulch. The New York City Parks Department will host the annual MulchFest on January 8th and 9th at locations citywide. Bring your holiday tree to one of 80+ designated parks to be recycled into mulch that will nourish plantings across the city or your own garden!

We hope thousands of New York families will help the environment and the community by bringing their trees city collection sites – there will be over 30 chipping sites and about 50 drop-off sites throughout the five boroughs.

Remember to remove all lights and decorations before bringing the tree to a MulchFest site. Gardening bonus: You will have the opportunity to take home your mulch at designated chipping sites.
