Recycle Your Christmas Tree in Hendersonville

January 5, 2012

Recycle Your Christmas Tree in HendersonvilleNow that the holidays are over, what do you do with your tree?  This kind of wood burns too hot for an indoor fireplace or wood burning stove and can create a dangerous buildup of creosote (black soot), increasing the chances of a house fire.  Therefore, chopping it up and using it for firewood is not a good idea.  Don’t worry, though.  The City of Hendersonville has the solution!

You can recycle your Christmas tree in Hendersonville this Saturday, January 7th at Jackson Park’s Field #6 parking lot (801 Glover St) from 9am to 2pm.  If you can’t make it to the event this Saturday, however, you can drop your tree off earlier in the day at Field #6.  All trees that are dropped off will be ground up into mulch which will then be given back to the public for free to use for your household landscaping needs.  Mulch helps aid in water retension and reduction of soil erosion.

Please dispose of your Christmas tree in a safe and eco-friendly way by attending the Henderson County Christmas tree recycling event this Saturday, January 7, 2012 at the Field #6 parking lot of Jackson Park from 9am to 2pm.  When it’s turned into mulch, you will be able to continue enjoying the benefits of your Christmas tree beyond the holiday season as part of your Hendersonville lawn or garden.
