If your Christmas tree brought your family happiness during the holidays, don’t let it end its service in a landfill or dump! Please consider allowing it to continue to provide beauty by being chipped and recycled into mulch that will benefit local green spaces in your community!
Awbury Arboretum Landscapes has partnered with East Mt. Airy Neighbors to bring you this much-needed community service! Trees will be accepted at the Arboretum on Saturday, January 11th, from 11 till 2. The entrance to the Arboretum grounds is on the east side of Chew Avenue, just south of Washington Lane, near the SEPTA railroad bridge. (There will be signs directing you to Cope House.) The mulch will be distributed to several garden areas in the Arboretum.
NO EARLY DROP-OFFS, PLEASE!
>>>> Ornaments, tinsel, etc., should be removed from trees before you bring them. There will be a $5 fee for each tree, to cover the cost of the events, and to support EMAN’s work in the community, and to help EMAN and Awbury continue to offer sustainability activities in the community.
Can’t make it to the Arboretum on the 11th? East Mt. Airy Neighbors is offering another Tree Recycling event on Sunday, January 5th, from 1 till 4 PM in partnership with the Philadelphia TreeCycling program. This event will take place at the parking lot on Chew Avenue, just south of Mt. Airy Avenue (behind the Sedgwick Theater). The mulch will be donated to community gardens in the neighborhood.
