What happens to the recycled trees?

Trees are chipped into mulch or compost at a variety of local facilities. Treecycling helps save valuable landfill space and the compost is used to enhance soils, save water, and reduce use of chemical fertilizers.

*Flocked trees cannot be recycled and must be disposed of as garbage. Wreaths and garland can be recycled only if you are able to remove all wire, plastic pieces, and non-biodegradable pieces.
