Northland Arboretum offers Christmas tree recycling
Brainerd MN 506 James St. / PO Box 974 56401

Don’t throw your Christmas tree in the trash. The Northland Arboretum is taking real trees — not the artificial ones — and chipping them to be recycled onto the Arb’s trails.

People may bring their Christmas tree to the old Arb entrance, which is off Seventh Street to the north of Herberger’s, and leave it on the south side of the gate by the sign. Arb officials ask those leaving trees to make sure stands and all decorations are removed from the tree before it is left there for recycling.
