Home Depot participates in ‘Bring One for the Chipper’

In Georgia, Home Depot stores will participate in a statewide “Bring One for the Chipper” tree-recycling program, according to several local news reports.

In exchange for a Christmas tree, Home Depot stores will provide a free seedling. The program is being held in partnership with local Davey Tree Expert Co. and Georgia’s “Keep Georgia Beautiful” initiative and local NBC affiliate WXIA-TV.

According to reports, more than 4.5 million Christmas trees have been recycled through the program by being chipped into mulch. Some trees also are used as wildlife habitats.
