December 26, 2021 – January 9, 2022
Wrap up your holiday season and say goodbye to your tree at Mulchfest. Join NYC Parks and the New York City Department of Sanitation in the NYC holiday tradition of recycling your Christmas tree!
Put on your boots and haul your tree to a Mulchfest location — we’ll chip your tree into wood chips that we’ll use to nourish trees and make NYC even greener.
More than 29,000 trees were recycled last year. Help us top this number!
Saturday, Jan. 8 and Sunday, Jan. 9 – 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Bring your tree to a chipping site on Chipping Weekend to take home a tree-mento! We’ll chip your tree and give you your very own bag of mulch to use in your backyard or to make a winter bed for a street tree.
To participate, just look for a chipping site on the map here, or on the list below.
Know Before You Go
Please remember to remove all lights, ornaments, and netting before bringing the tree to a Mulchfest site. Mulch is available at the sites marked with an asterisk (*) below.
Please wear a face covering and practice social distancing by remaining at least 6 feet apart from others.
How to Volunteer
Volunteer with our Stewardship Team to help spread mulch from Mulchfest around our trees to insulate them from the cold weather. Find a site near you, and help give back to our trees! Register today
Drop off your tree at any Mulchfest location during park hours between December 26 and January 9 or join us at Chipping Weekend on Saturday, January 8 and Sunday, January 9!
