Residents can bring their used Christmas trees to Forest Hills City Hall to be chipped up for the trails at Radnor Lake State Natural Area.
Bring your trees to the rear parking area through February 1.
Also, the City’s chipper service will pick up trees on its regular routes the last week of December and in January.
For both places, remove all ornaments, metal, and stands from the tree. For pickup, place the tree as close to the street as possible. Do not place it in a ditch. MORE
