After your heirloom ornaments and twinkling
lights have been stripped from your Christmas tree, bring the
withering reminder of too much food and cheer to the 11th annual
holiday tree recycling event at Prospect Park on Jan. 3.
From 10 am to 3 pm, giant wood chippers, stationed at Third Street and Prospect Park West, will transform your holiday tree into life-giving mulch for the park’s grounds and neighboring gardens. (Or you can also take your share of free mulch by bringing a shovel and container or garbage bags.)
The Park Slope Civic Council will reward you for your efforts with hot chocolate - if you bring your tree after noon.
Trees can also be dropped off at any of the park’s entrances where they will be collected for chipping.
For more information, call the Prospect Park Alliance at (718) 965-8999.
