MulchFest 2023

Mon Dec 26, 2022
10:00am to 2:00pm ET
, New York, NY

Bring your holiday tree to Mulchfest to be recycled into mulch to nourish plantings in the parks all year long! You can watch your tree devolve and evolve in person!

The wood chips are used to nourish trees and plants on streets and gardens citywide. And here’s the best part—on "chipping weekend," (Saturday, January 7-Sunday, January 8) you can take a bag of Christmas tree mulch home with you!

Drop-offs begin at 74 sites citywide on Saturday, December 26, including:

Van Cortlandt Park
Golf course at Bailey Ave. & Van Cortlandt Park S.

Prospect Park
Lincoln Rd. & Ocean Ave.; Park Cir. & Parkside Ave.; Third St. & Prospect Park W.
