UBC Botanical Garden: Christmas Tree Recycling


Recycle your Christmas Tree! All proceeds support Thunderbird Elementary, a school with a high percentage of vulnerable students. Garden lessons, provided by SPEC (Society Promoting Environmental Conservation), give students the opportunity to explore, observe and connect to their natural world through engaging hands-on activities in their school garden. All trees will be chipped into mulch and used on garden trails there. Tree chipping is generously supported by Wood Pro Tree Services.
  • Please remove all decorations and tinsel.
  • Minimum donation of $5 is appreciated.
  • Follow the signs and place your tree behind the orange posts to drop off your tree at UBC Botanical Garden.
  • No yard trimmings – invasive plants from other areas can harm the Garden
Date & Time: December 26, 2019 – January 8, 2020 (10:00am to 12:00pm)
Location: UBC Botanical Garden (6804 SW Marine Dr, Vancouver, BC)
