Chipping Weekend - January 12th & 13th
Alternately, join the Chipping Weekend in Washington Square Park to take home a tree-mento! NYC Parks will chip your tree and give you your very own bag of mulch to use in your backyard or to make a winter bed for a street tree.
To participate simply take your tree to the Park between 10am and 2pm on January 12th & 13th. There are also other chipping locations across the city, find them here.
Remember to remove all lights and decorations before taking your tree for mulching.
