Day 1 of MulchFest promises to be a tree for all

[Reader photo from Wednesday]

Let the puns chipping commence! Today marks the first of two Chipping Saturdays this month in Tompkins Square Park.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today and then again next Saturday (Jan. 11!), park workers will be mulching up the Christmas trees that residents have dropped off in the Park. You can even take a little mulch with you.

Per the Parks Dept. website: "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."

Meanwhile, we need a tow truck to get this one over to be mulched... spotted this morning on 14th Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue...

I pine for the days when yule not have to spruce up the area with this treecycling on First Avenewe. The copse are busy enough when it goes bark dealing with the root of local crime without all these extra needles left on the sidewalk.
