Borough Hall’s giant holiday tree will be turned to mulch at Green-Wood Cemetery, Fifth Avenue and 25th Street, January 10, as Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz; Scot Medbury, president of Brooklyn Botanic Garden; and Richard J. Moylan, president of Green-Wood Cemetery preside at Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Green-Wood Cemetery’s Seventh annual “Holiday Tree Recycling and Wood Chip Mulch Giveaway” at 10 a.m.

Master composters from Brooklyn Botanic Garden will also be on hand to discuss the benefits of using wood chip mulch – how mulch protects the soil, helps retain soil moisture, protects against heavy rain damage, increases the survival of new trees, and reduces the growth of weeds.

Brooklyn residents are invited to bring their holiday trees and watch as they are recycled on the spot. Free wood chips – perfect for landscaping projects – will be available for those who bring their trees to be mulched, along with a shovel and bag. Free wood chips are also available year-round at Green-Wood Cemetery.

For more, visitors should call Green-Wood Cemetery at 718-768-7300.
