Mulchfest: Christmas trees recycle too

Scroll this

Building on the success of last year’s Christmas tree recycling event, at which almost 17,000 trees were turned into useful chips, this year Mulchfest will be held across the city’s parks and will allow you to drop off your tree at one of 70 locations. The chips produced are used by gardeners, on park paths, and as a layer of protection for the roots of New York’s street trees. Saturday and Sunday, January 7 and 8th; tree drop offs can begin on January 2. For locations:
