MulchFest 2011 and Other Bronx Events

Nothing looks sadder on a post-New Year's sidewalk than all of those discarded Christmas trees piling up. If you want your tree to fare a better fate than the curb, you can recycle it through the Park Department's annual MulchFest, which takes place this Saturday and Sunday at designated parks across the five boroughs.

There are sixteen spots in the Bronx where you can drop off your tree. Parks Department workers will send it through a wood chipper and turn it into mulch that's used to nourish plants and other trees throughout the city. Locations are listed here. Certain sites will have wood chippers on hand, so you can take a free bag of mulch home with you to use on your block or in your garden.

This and other Bronx events are posted below, in our community calendar.

  1. Trees that are brought to the curbside between 1/3 and 1/15 will be turned into mulch, too.
