Free Christmas tree recycling at Ross Community Garden
On Saturday 9th January 2021 local tree company Chapel Tree Services will be teaming up with Ross Community Garden to offer a free Christmas Tree recycling service.
Ross residents can bring their tree to the garden in Old Gloucester Road, where it will be put through the woodchipper (by a professional trained operator). The woodchip will then be used in the community garden.
Chapel Trees Director Matt Long said: “We often get asked if we can chip trees when we are working in people’s gardens in January and we do hate to see trees wasted after they serve their Christmas purpose, so what better way to recycle them than to provide a useful product that the team at Community Garden can make use of.”
The Chapel Trees team will be on site from 9am until 3pm, just pop along and see your tree turned into woodchip, but please ensure all tinsel, baubles and lights are removed first!
Tim Shelley, who runs the Haygrove Community Garden, and his team will be on hand selling hot drinks and festive treats and also saplings to encourage youngsters to plant a Christmas tree for the future. Tim said: “The trees we planted in 2013 when the garden was opened are now a decent size and it is great for the children to see the progress of the trees we plant each year.”
