MulchFest is an annual event held by the Department of Parks &
Recreation, in partnership with the Department of Sanitation, that provides
New Yorkers with the opportunity to bring their holiday trees to be
recycled at designated sites across the five boroughs. At these sites we
use “chipping machines” to turn dead trees into mulch, which
can then be placed in tree pits and horticultural areas to help conserve
warmth and soil moisture throughout the winter.

Every year, MillionTreesNYC seeks Education Volunteers to help out at
MulchFest by assisting at mulching sites in flagship parks across the city
and teaching New Yorkers about the importance of tree care during the
winter. It’s also a great opportunity to pick up some mulch for use on the
trees on your block!

MulchFest Education Volunteers:

• Teach event visitors about the environmental benefits of
mulching;

• Help bag mulch for park patrons to take home with them;

• Promote the MillionTreesNYC Stewardship Program.
