Tree recycling event to be held Nov. 9

See also

Fall is an excellent time to trim trees and shrubs in your landscape. Rather than putting these items out with your trash, recycle them. The Highlands Ranch Metro District invites residents to recycle discarded tree branches and other woody plant materials at its fall tree recycling event Saturday, Nov. 9.

Tree limbs less than 12 inches in diameter and woody plant materials will be accepted at the recycling event. The following items will not be accepted: finished lumber, non-woody material, grass clippings, sod and root balls. All discarded material will be chipped into mulch and given away free to homeowners or reused in parks and parkways in the community.

The fall tree recycling event will take place Nov. 9 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the parking lot at Shea Stadium at Redstone Park, 3280 Redstone Park Cir., Highlands Ranch.

If you have questions about winter tree care, visit the Metro District’s website at www.highlandsranch.org and navigate to the Forestry page. An article written by a Metro District forestry technician details three practices suited for the winter months, mulching, structure pruning and transplanting. The website provides additional articles that give tree care tips and information for the year-round care of landscape. If you have specific tree care questions, please contact a certified arborist.

In addition to the fall recycling event, the Metro District offers Christmas tree recycling from late December through mid-January. For more information about tree recycling in Highlands Ranch, please call 303-791-2710.
