MISSOULA – The City of Missoula is once again offering up help for folks looking for an environmentally friendly way of disposing of their Christmas Tree.

The Christmas Ever-Green tree recycling program runs through January 15 and residents may drop off cut Christmas trees to be recycled into mulch and conserve landfill space as several locations.

Christmas Ever-Green is sponsored by Missoula Parks and Recreation’s Urban Forestry Division, Garden City Compost and the City’s Street Maintenance Division.

Donations to support the program and plant more trees throughout the community are gratefully accepted at

Folks may drop their trees — without stands and decorations — at McCormick or Playfair parks through January 15. An additional drop site is available at Fort Missoula Regional Park West in the 36th Avenue parking lot

Residents may also recycle their Christmas trees at no charge at Garden City Compost at 1125 Clark Fork Lane weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please drop organic materials only, and do not leave trees outside the gates at the compost facility.
