Bring One for the Chipper

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 who makes the mulch from the trees available to businesses, schools, and residents free of charge.

Tree seedlings are available to participants as supplies last. This event is open to everyone and free of charge. If you would like to support this event and others like it, you can donate here.

Bring One for the Chipper is held in partnership with the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation.
