Broward County's annual Chip-a-Tree program has begun. Now through Monday, January 15th you can drop off your tree to a participating park, where they are chipped and used for landscaping throughout the county park system.

Last year Broward County Parks recycled more than 5,000 trees, representing tons of material that would otherwise have gone to landfills. This year your tree can join those recyclable thousands. The program is free, limit 2 trees per vehicle. No decorated or artificial trees will be accepted. No commercial vehicles or garbage trucks allowed. Regular weekend and holiday gate entrance fee will NOT be in effect for recyclers.
