Treecycle This Weekend

As this is the last weekend Bryant Park's tree will be on display in the park, we thought some of you may be wondering about the best way to dispose of your own Christmas trees. Perfect timing, because this weekend is MulchFest 2011.

On Saturday, January 8 and Sunday, January 9, you can take your stripped down trees (no lights or ornaments please) to 35 chipping sites across the five boroughs to be turned into wood chips by the Department of Parks and Recreation, Department of Sanitation, and GreeNYC.

Walk away with your own bag of mulch, or donate your wood chips for use in city parks, gardens, and tree pits. In addition to the chipping sites, there will be 35 drop off locations where you can leave your trees. Find the site closest to you and more information here.

Bid adieu to our spectacular tree by visiting for one last photo op this weekend, or take a look back on the blog at this season's spectacular Tree Lighting Celebration.

Now, get to work packing up those ornaments and help top last year's MulchFest record of 24,000 recycled trees!
