Be sure to remove all decorations, tinsel and plastic tree bags. They will also provide wood chip mulch free of charge while quantities last, starting early January (please bring your own container).

The trees will be chipped and used as mulch for landscaping across the city, which would prevent moisture loss and prevent weed growth. For more information click HERE.
