(WAAY-31)-As the Christmas season comes to an end, you’re probably wondering what to do with your Christmas tree.

While most areas will pick up your tree along with other trash, both Huntsville and Madison City's are encouraging people to consider recycling their trees.

You can drop off your tree anytime at the mulch pile next to the Huntsville Botanical Garden on Bob Wallace Ave. The designated area is located right behind the CASA Community Garden. (Just be sure that the tree is stripped of all ornaments and lights.)

January 15th is the last day you can drop off your tree.

“We (are happy to) provide a positive way for you to get rid of those beautiful Christmas trees by putting them back into the environment,” said Carol Casey with the Huntsville Botanical Garden. 

After the 15th, the trees will be turned into mulch. The mulch is always free for the pubic to take and use in their own gardens.
