Give a tree, get a tree at Warner Robins Christmas tree round-up

awoolen@macon.comJanuary 2, 2013 

For 23 years, Keep Warner Robins Beautiful has kept many used Christmas trees out of landfills.

This year, as in previous years, the organization is also giving away a seedling to those who bring their trees to the Great Christmas Tree Round-up Saturday from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. on Maple Street.

Most of the trees will be turned into mulch for parks in Warner Robins, according to a news release. Other trees will be used in lakes and streams in the area to provide a better habitat for fish.

Flint Energies sponsors the round-up by providing the seedlings as well as the chipper that mulches the Christmas trees.

“We feel it is important for our organization to be a part of the community we serve,” said David Carr, manager of energy services at Flint Energies.

Carr also said their 20-plus year support of the event is another way to help Keep Warner Robins Beautiful.

The trees must be stripped of ornaments and tinsel to be donated.

Trees can be dropped off near the water tower on Maple Street at any time, but Saturday is the only day to get a tree in return.
