have come to a the
bin, and you re-gifted an item or two that didn't spark joy. Good for you! But did you know that you can "treecycle" your natural Christmas tree as well? For the first few weeks of the New Year, residents throughout the greater Hampton Roads area may take advantage of a seasonal "treecycling" program according to their locality guidelines. Many cities and counties collect and chip the trees into mulch or compost that is used to spruce up community parks, roadway plantings and median areas. The trees, which should be free of lights, ornaments, tinsel and decorations can be placed at the curb on scheduled collection days or taken to a designated drop-off location.
Find your city or county's collection guidelines by going to askHRgreen. org/christmastrees2020.
In addition to making mulch,
natural trees, boughs and garland can benefit your lawn and garden in other beautiful ways when you:
Use the tree as a habitat plant beds for winter protection
Shred pines needles for use on pathways and trails Use branches and trunk
segments to form borders around garden areas and pathways
