Merry Mulch Program

2020 Merry Mulch Program

The City of Hudson provides free citywide pickup of live Christmas trees following the holidays. This is an opportunity for residents to recycle their trees. After pickup, the trees are processed into a natural mulch product.

Trees must be out by January 12 for the first round of pickup and by January 26 for the second round. This program is not intended for removal of brush, tree branches, or live decorations, such as wreaths or garland.

In order to participate in the program, Christmas trees must be free of the following:
  • Wires
  • Decorations
  • Tree stands
  • Plastic bags/plastic wrap
  • Ornaments
Trees must be placed in the tree lawn area (the area between the sidewalk and the edge of the street in front of your home) no later than the dates below:
