Recycle your Christmas tree and order your parking clock!

Where to drop off your Christmas Tree in the New Forest

Recycle your real Christmas tree - and where to buy your 2021 NFDC parking clocks!

It's time to take down the Christmas decorations for another year - for some, this is a sad occasion, whilst others roll up their sleeves with glee as it marks the start of spring cleaning! As usual, New Forest District Council has designated drop-off points for real Christmas trees at selected car parks. The collected trees will be chipped and used as mulch. Drop-off points will be open Saturday 2nd - Sunday 17th January 2021. 

Drop-off points for real Christmas trees

Christmas treesNFDC ask that all decorations are removed from the tree before taking it to a drop-off point. Leave trees in the designated fenced bays only. Be considerate of others; take your tree to the back of the bay to avoid blocking the entrance.
