Loveland residents are invited and encouraged to recycle their Christmas trees. Tree recycling is easy, reduces landfill waste and provides needed mulch for Loveland’s parks. Last year, approximately 5,000 Christmas trees were recycled into 500+ cubic yards of beneficial mulch. This service is provided free of charge.
