Will you take my live or cut Christmas tree after Christmas?

TreePeople cannot take your live tree for risk of infecting our own nursery stock. The L.A. County Tree Farm will accept and replant live Christmas trees. Their nursery is near Pomona; phone: (909) 593-3036.

For cut trees we recommend calling California Christmas Tree Recyclers. They will come to your home, remove the tree, drain the stand, vacuum the floor, mulch the tree and donate a portion of all proceeds to TreePeople! Call (818) 986-1300 or (310) 584-6589 or visit www.recycletrees.com.

If you would like to dispose of your own cut tree, small trees can be cut to fit into your green waste bin (please make sure to remove ornaments). For larger trees, check out www.888CleanLA.com for county tree drop-off sites. For L.A. City residents, you can also call 311 for the location of the nearest Christmas tree drop off location near you. 

All other residents around the U.S. may visit www.earth911.com for Christmas tree recycling centers near you.
