MulchFest '06

MulchFest pile
This is about all that's left of some 80 Christmas evergreens, now ready to become mulch, after they were chipped up by the parks department's big orange chipper machine. I hauled my small tree off to Inwood Hill Park this afternoon to add to the yearly recycling effort. The remains of the trees are then used to fertilize plantings around the park. The smell was especially pungent as the chipper performed its noisy deed — almost like a massive pine-scented air freshener spray, chopping through all the bark and sap and needles.

Mulchfest in action
