Recycling your Christmas tree.

Recycling your tree helps protect the environment and keep your community a beautiful place in which to live.

  • Real Christmas trees are recyclable and can be used throughout the community.
  • Recycled trees can be turned into corrugated packaging, compost for gardens or used as mulch along park trails to prevent erosion. Some conservation organizations use recycled Christmas trees to create protected habitats for wildlife, such as herons or endangered fish.
  • Earth911.org offers complete listings of where to recycle real Christmas trees, which can be turned into beneficial products for use throughout the community.
