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.

This event is free for community members and is one-day only. Seed packets and tree seedlings are distributed to participants.

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

Bringing Your Tree

Bring One for the Chipper is for live trees only. No artificial trees are collected at this event. All trees must be free of all lights or ornaments. We do not accept garland, wreaths, or any flocked trees.
