NYC Parks will be collecting holiday trees at Mulchfest locations between Dec. 26, 2021 – Jan. 9, 2022. NYC Parks will also host Chipping Weekend on Sat. 1/8 & Sun. 1/9. Bring your tree to a Mulchfest location during park hours. Your tree will be turned into wood chips that will be used to nourish trees and make NYC greener. Free bags of mulch are available. Please remove all lights and ornaments before bringing your tree to a Mulchfest site. More than 29,000 trees were recycled last year. Help us top this number this year! For more information, visit
