FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Forsyth County’s Christmas tree recycling effort organized by Keep Forsyth County Beautiful (KFCB) recycled about 5,500 trees.
Forsyth County residents have now recycled more than 85,000 trees since the county first began participating in the “Bring One for the Chipper” event in 1994.
Tammy Wright, Forsyth County environmental program manager, extended her thanks to Davey Tree Service, Sawnee EMC and Forsyth County Roads and Bridges for providing chipping services for the trees.
Wright also thanked all volunteers who provided time and leadership at the tree recycling locations throughout the county and all those who participated in the tree recycling effort including the Forsyth County Master Gardeners, Master Naturalists and 4-H Club members.
The recycled trees were processed into wood chips.
Free wood chips are available to Forsyth County residents while supplies last near the Forsyth County Roads and Bridges facility on County Way just off of Ga. 400.
Residents are responsible for loading and hauling their own wood chips.
