Bring One for the Chipper

January 4, 2020 from 9AM-3PM

Bring One for the Chipper is a tree recycling program that supports wider eco-friendly holiday efforts. According to the National Christmas Tree Association, for each tree harvested, one to three seedlings are planted in its place. Nearly 350 million Christmas trees currently grow on U.S. farms, absorbing carbon dioxide, emitting fresh oxygen, stabilizing soil, protecting water supplies, and providing refuge for wildlife. 

Keep North Fulton Beautiful will host this event at three locations (listed below). Residents are asked to remove electric lights, tinsel and ornaments from the tree, and make sure your tree has not been flocked, or sprayed with fake snow made from artificial materials. Some retailers, such as Pike Nursery, use natural, corn-based flocking, which is acceptable at the event. 

KNFB will also have a limited supply of flower, herb, and vegetable seeds as well as dogwood and willow oak seedlings at each location.
