2024 Bring One for the Chipper

The 2024 Bring One for the Chipper took place on Saturday, January 6, 2024. Nineteen KSB volunteers helped 285 cars and trailers unload Christmas trees to be mulched. The total number of trees is still being counted.

Bring One for the Chipper is Keep Smyrna Beautiful’s annual Christmas tree recycling event. Rather than ending up in a landfill, the thousands of trees taken at this event are chipped by Davey Tree Company, which makes the mulch from the trees available to businesses, schools, and residents free of charge.

This year, KSB also gave away 150 redbud seedlings, courtesy of the Georgia Forestry Commission and the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation. KSB is grateful for ongoing support from Chick-fil-A, which supplied lunch for volunteers and gift cards for participants, and the Campbell High School baseball team, which dropped off more than 100 trees at the event as part of their annual fundraiser.
