Give your holiday tree a second lease on life by treecycling it at the annual New York City Department of Parks & Recreation MulchFest!
Drop your tree off for recycling in Washington Square Park between now and January 7th. Trees get turned into wood chips which are then used to nourish trees and plants on streets and gardens citywide.
Alternately, take home your very own bag of mulch and wood chips to use in your backyard, with on the spot tree chipping on January 6th & 7th, 10am - 2pm each day.
Oh, and don't forget to remove all lights, ornaments, and netting before taking your tree for recycling.
