Re: FW: CYBERGARDENS: NY Times Article on the Christmas Tree mulching program

So would it work to rent some chippers and go to the remaining neighborhoods
and chip people's trees for them?

Or maybe a tree service company would donate an hour a day or a saturday in
the remaining neighborhoods?

Or getting more creative here, perhaps there could be a Tree March for the
Parks.  Beginning Saturday morning at 8am everyone could put their tree on a
wagon or dolly, or get a team of people to take turns dragging it to the
nearest park or community garden.  Each block would also need a few people
who would be willing to sweep the sidewalks late Saturday afternoon.  The
swept up needles could be used to mulch nearby shrubbery.  And perhaps
neighbors, scout troups, and civic groups could take trees for those
physically incapable of making the trek.

....Envisioning millions of trees going down each sidewalk converging on
each park...
