MulchFest officially underway with first arrivals in Tompkins Square Park

MulchFest season is now upon us. Starting today, residents may drop off Christmas trees at any MulchFest location through Jan. 11.

EVG MulchFest Senior Editor Steven noted that two trees have already arrived in Tompkins Square Park, perhaps by residents who will be traveling for the remainder of the holidays or need the space for setting up the New Year's buffet.

The trees will gather here until Chipping Saturdays, which take place on Jan. 4 and Jan. 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Per the Parks Dept. website:

Bring your tree to a chipping site on Chipping Saturdays to take home a tree-mento! We'll chip your tree and give you your very own bag of mulch to use in your backyard or to make a winter bed for a street tree.
