Two Live Tree Disposal Sites Open

December 22, 2021

The Parks and Recreation Department has opened two sites for disposal of live Christmas trees. Trees can be disposed of at the Sac & Fox trail parking lot, Bertram Road and Wilder Drive SE, or at Prairie Park Fishery, 2125 Otis Rd SE. All tinsel, ornaments, decorations, stands, watering packets, tree wrap and netting must be removed from trees prior to disposal. Flocked trees, wreaths and garland cannot be recycled. Both sites are open from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Signs indicating drop off areas are posted at each location.

Trees disposed of at the Sac & Fox lot will be chipped and used by the Indian Creek Nature Center on hiking trails. Trees dropped off at Prairie Park Fishery will be placed on the ice to use as fish habitat as the ice melts in the spring.
