Chopper will create new life for Christmas trees, as mulch

December 23, 1992

Want to do the environmentally correct thing with your Christmas tree? Mulch it.

Starting at 10 a.m. Monday, county residents can take trees to Homestead Gardens in Davidsonville, where a Department of Public Works tree chopper will grind it to mulch for free. Residents then can take home a bag filled with 2 cubic feet of mulch, or fill up the bed of a pickup truck if they want.

County Executive Robert R. Neall hailed the mulching process as a way to save landfill space. The unused Christmas tree mulch will be donated by Homestead Gardens to the county for use on county-maintained grounds.

Homestead Gardens is located at 743 W. Central Ave. (Route 214). The mulching operation will continue daily from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. until Jan. 10.
