Join the Delaware Center for Horticulture and Wilmington’s Urban Forestry crew for this FREE family-friendly tree shredding event! Keep your trees out of the landfill, and take home a bag of fresh wood chips for your garden. The City of Wilmington’s Urban Forestry team will be on hand to chip trees in a commercial chipper/grinder and hand participants a bag of mulch. Warm up next to our fire pit in DCH’s courtyard and enjoy hot apple cider and s’mores while you wait. The first 50 event participants will receive custom TreeCycle neck warmers and tree swag.

Trees can be dropped off in the DCH parking lot starting December 30. For equipment and operator safety, any ropes, wires, stands, or metal objects should be remove from the tree. The service is free of charge; donations benefit DCH’s community forestry efforts.
