Recycle your xmas tree

DEM will use them for erosion control and habitat protection

In partnership with Trout Unlimited, we’re collecting trees for upcoming projects to restore river habitats by reducing erosion and creating refuge habitat for fish, turtles, and other aquatic organisms.

Strategically placing the trees along the river edge narrows the stream and slows the flow of water, trapping sediment and stabilizing the bank.

Cut Christmas trees may be dropped off between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., on Friday, January 3 and Friday, January 10 at DEM Division of Fish & Wildlife’s Outdoor Education Office in Exeter.

Please call our office at (401) 539-0019 to schedule at drop-off time and remember to remove all bags, tree stands, decorations and lights.
