Many locations ‘treecycle’ live Christmas trees

BATAVIA, OH (Dec. 17, 2019) — When the holidays are over, make sure you treecycle! The act of recycling a live Christmas tree is a leading reason many experts agree they are more environmentally friendly than their plastic counterparts.

Treecycling is the act of recycling your cut Christmas tree, so that it can be used in other capacities.  The trees can get a second life after they are chipped (used for mulch and hiking trails), become fish or wildlife habitat, or are utilized for lake and river shoreline stabilization.

Locally, many communities and the Clermont County Park District are offering opportunities for you to treecycle.  But before you take your tree to a collection site or haul it to the curb for pick-up, please be sure to remove all lights, tinsel and decorations.
