Grinding of the Greens

At Chester State Park

Once Christmas is over, save space in the landfill and help improve the fishing at Chester State Park by recycling your live Christmas tree at the park. Bring your trees for the staff to grind into mulch and spread throughout the park. Select trees will also be placed in the lake to create fish habitat.
