The more you know:

Have you ever wondered what happens to your tree after the holidays are over?

After your tree is picked up curbside or brought to City Yard, they are brought to Route 99 (this is also where your yard waste is taken to be composted). The trees that are brought there are then put through a wood chipper. The wood chips that are created from processing are then used in parks and other open space areas. When your properly dispose of your Christmas tree it gets a second life in our City!
