Bozeman now has drop-off locations for Christmas trees



Bozeman, Montana – The recycling of Christmas trees is now available to city residents, according to the City of Bozeman.

The Forestry Division recycles the trees as a courtesy, using the resulting compost as organic cover at specific sites, according to the city website.

There are three drop-off sites available:

• The lower parking lot of the Softball Complex on Haggerty Lane (entrance on Haggerty)
• Christie Fields (enter off East Mason Street, just east of the playground)
• Gallatin County Regional Park – (entrance on West Oak, drop site is near the BMX bike area)

The City additionally posted the following guidelines:

• Trees will be recycled into a natural compost/mulch. Please remove ALL ornaments, lights, wire, twine, etc.
• Please DO NOT cut the tree into smaller pieces! Whole trees are more easily managed by our equipment.
• Wreaths and garlands are not accepted. We cannot chip this material for mulch. Please dispose of these items properly.
• This is a service for Bozeman residents, NOT for commercial disposal of leftover inventory.

Call (406) 582-3225 to speak with city officials if you have any queries or concerns.
