Say fir-well to your holiday tree

Wrap up your holiday season and say goodbye to your tree at Mulchfest. Join Brooklyn Bridge Park and NYC Parks in the NYC holiday tradition of recycling your Christmas tree!

After your holiday, bring your tree to Brooklyn Bridge Park, or any Mulchfest location, and we’ll chip your tree into wood chips that will be used to nourish trees and make NYC even greener.

DROP OFF LOCATIONS AT BROOKLYN BRIDGE PARK (DEC. 26 – JAN 06):

*Drop off you tree at any of these locations between December 26 – January 6. Please remember to remove all lights, ornaments, and netting before bringing the tree to a Mulchfest site.

Bring your tree to a chipping site on Chipping Weekend to take home a tree-mento! We’ll chip your tree and give you your very own bag of mulch to use in your backyard or to make a winter bed for a street tree.

CHIPPING WEEKEND LOCATION AT BROOKLYN BRIDGE PARK: Pier 3 Plaza

In 1946, demolition of the 19th-century brick warehouses along Furman Street began as to make way for the cantilevered Brooklyn Queens Expressway.

The park’s lighting system is controlled in zones and can be dimmed to conserve energy without compromising park safety.

In 1989 the Brooklyn Heights Association proposed the “Harbor Park” plan, the beginnings of what would become Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Long Leaf Yellow Pine from the demolished Cold Storage Buildings is reused as cladding on park structures and custom-designed park benches.

The building at 99 Plymouth Street, now home to the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy’s Environmental Education Center, public restrooms, and a community space, was formally a NYC Department of Environmental Protection building

Trees, lawns, and shrubs are managed organically

The water spray feature in pier 2 uplands features pile caps cut away from pier 3.

Several park structures have green roofs, which serve to absorb rainwater, provide building insulation, and create new habitats for wildlife and lower urban air temperatures.

The monarch butterfly is one of the most frequent visitors to the Pier 6 Flower Field. Seen the most often here in late August while on their great annual migration.

37 nautical bollards were savaged and reused in the Pier 3 Labyrinth.

Pier 1 in the busiest entrance into the Park.

Pier 1 is 9.5 acres, the largest of the park piers.

Emily Warren Roebling Plaza is the final piece of Brooklyn Bridge Park to be constructed

Empire Stores and the Tobacco warehouse are both Civil War Era buildings

Emily Roebling Plaza is 20,000 square feet

Seating at parts of the Empire Fulton Ferry landscape around “Jane’s Carousel” is constructed of 3,200 cubic yards of granite salvaged from the reconstruction of the Willis Avenue Bridge.

Demolition on the waterfront began in 2008.
