Going Green: Tree-Cycling

Adventurer B

With the holidays here, it’s time to “think green.”  So here’s a holiday-themed Green Tip for you—all about tree-cycling!

Did you know that 30–35 million real Christmas trees are sold each year in the United States? Recycling your Christmas tree is an easy way to give a renewable and natural resource back to the environment.

The National Christmas Tree Association tells us that tree recycling benefits many projects from wildlife habitat creation to sand dune restoration to mulch and playground materials. So, this year, recycle your Christmas Tree by finding a tree recycling center or pick-up time in your community. Visit, enter the type of recycling you’re looking for (Christmas Tree), and your zip code to find Christmas Tree recycling in your neighborhood and tips on how to recycle your tree. ‘Tis the season to be Green!

Let us know how you plan on making your holiday Green this season by posting your comments below.  DING!  You are now free to be Green!
