From Christmas tree to mulch

Jim Hogan drags his Christmas tree the five blocks from his home to Missoula's McCormick Park on Wednesday afternoon for recycling. Trees can be dropped off at McCormick and Playfair parks until Monday, Jan. 15, for mulching.

Missoula Parks and Recreation’s Urban Forestry Division is inviting citizens to drop off their cut Christmas trees to be recycled into productive mulch with the Christmas Ever-Green program. Last year, the program recycled over 10,000 trees, conserving valuable landfill space.

Residents may drop their trees, sans tree stands and decorations, at McCormick or Playfair parks through Monday, Jan. 15. Due to construction at Fort Missoula Regional Park, the Fort Missoula recycling site is closed this season. Please do not leave yard waste or garbage at drop sites.

If you’d like to support Christmas Ever-Green and help plant more trees throughout Missoula, please consider making a donation to Trees For Missoula. Donate online at the Friends of Missoula Parks website, phone 406-721-7275, stop by Currents Aquatics Center in McCormick Park, or mail donations to the Urban Forestry Division, 100 Hickory St., Missoula, 59801.
