NEW YORK (PIX11) — While some people plan to keep their Christmas trees up for a bit longer, those looking to clear up space in their homes can say goodbye during New York City’s annual Mulchfest.

At Mulchfest locations around the five boroughs, trees are turned into wood chips used to nourish trees. More than 50,600 trees were recycled last year.

This year, Mulchfest runs from Monday through Jan. 8. On Jan. 7 and Jan. 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., people can get bags of mulch for their own yards after having their tree chipped.

Anyone bringing a tree for recycling should make sure to remove all lights, ornaments and netting. Locations, broken down by borough, are listed below. Mulch is available at the locations marked with an asterisk (*).
