The Department of Agriculture has sponsored a program that since last week has already chipped about 65 trees.

If you haven’t already, you can still dispose of your Christmas tree properly. The Guam Department of Agriculture’s Christmas Tree Chipping Program will wrap up tomorrow.

A release from the Forestry & Soil Resources Division advises residents to avoid burning Christmas trees and not to dispose of them in the jungle.

The Department of Agriculture has sponsored a program that since beginning of last week has already chipped about 65 trees.

The department also allows community members to collect mulch from the trees once the piles have been screened, processed, and treated for invasive species.

The program, which began Dec. 30 at the warehouse parking lot diagonally across the street from the agency’s main building, will wrap up tomorrow, Saturday, Jan. 11 at 2 p.m.

However, if you are unable to drop off your tree before the deadline, you may contact the department for further drop off times.
