christmas trees piled in parking lot to be recycled through the wood chipper at Challenger Park in ParkerChristmas has come and gone. Now what to do with that tree?

Douglas County and its local municipalities have multiple locations where you can drop off your tree beginning the day after Christmas.

County-operated sites include:

Before bringing your tree to one of the County’s recycling sites, please remove all ornaments, lights, tinsel, garland, plastic wrap, tree stands, wire, rope, nails, etc. Also, please note that live trees with artificial snow sprayed on the branches cannot be mulched and will not be accepted.

For more information, please contact Douglas County Parks and Trails at 720-733-6990. Trees are accepted at the above locations anytime from Dec. 26-Jan. 31. Mulch will be available on-site while supplies last. Find additional municipal tree recycling locations in Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch and Parker.
