Don't throw out those holiday trees just yet, because you can bring your trees to a park this weekend for the parks department's Mulchfest. Some locations for Mulchfest 2005 are chipper only sites, which means you can take your tree home in the form of mulch, while other locations are for tree drop-off. Those without trees can also go to the Mulchfest locations for free mulch!

Alternatively, starting this Thursday, your trees can be left curbside for the Department of Sanitation to be recycled. From Thursday through Saturday, January 15th, the trees collected will be chipped into compost for parks throughout the city.

If we only had a garden to use the mulch in, we would be set!
