BRING ONE FOR THE CHIPPER
Annual Christmas Tree Recycling
Bring One for the Chipper is Georgia's annual Christmas tree recycling program. Each year, the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation works with private sponsors like The Home Depot, The Davey Tree Expert Company, Georgia Forestry Commission, 11 Alive, Ferry Morse Seed Company, Burpee Seed Company, and One Tree Planted to organize the event. Numerous local sponsors and volunteers also make contributions and provide in-kind services across the state.
The Chipper program involves hundreds of Georgia communities and thousands of volunteers. Since its inception, the program has recycled an estimated 6 million Christmas trees. The program transforms a large number of trees into mulch or recycled into fish habitat in lakes!
