Wrap up your holiday season and say goodbye to your tree at Mulchfest. Join NYC Parks and the New York City Department of Sanitation in the NYC holiday tradition of recycling your Christmas tree! The event will take place daily between Dec 26 and Jan 11.
Put on your boots and haul your tree to a Mulchfest location — we'll chip your tree into wood chips that we'll use to nourish trees and make NYC even greener. Juniper Valley Park's softball field is our local location and it is also a chipping site.
More than 28,000 trees were recycled last year. Help us top this number!
Saturday, Jan. 4 and Saturday, Jan. 11
10:00 a.m. ‒ 2:00 p.m.
Bring your tree to a chipping site on Chipping Saturdays to take home a tree-mento! We'll 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.
