Merry Mulch Program

2017 Merry Mulch Program


The City of Hudson provides free citywide pickup of live Christmas trees following the holidays. This is an opportunity for residents to recycle their trees. After pickup, the trees are processed into a natural mulch product.

Trees must be out by January 8 for the first round of pickup and by January 22 for the second round. This program is not intended for removal of brush, tree branches, or live decorations, such as wreaths or garland.

In order to participate in the program, Christmas trees must be free of the following:
• Wires
• Decorations
• Tree stands
• Plastic bags/plastic wrap
• Ornaments

Trees must be on the tree lawn no later than the dates below:
