Recycle your Christmas Tree

sun bear xmas tree recyclingFor many families bringing in a live Christmas tree is a tradition. But  just a few days from now, you will want it out of the house and even out of the yard. Catoctin Wildlife Preserve and Zoo will  be accepting recycled trees and using them as tasty treats and toys for their zoo animals.


We can only recycle natural trees. NO trees that have been sprayed with “snow”, scents or treated with chemicals. We cannot recycle trees with tinsel or other decorations still intact. No artificial trees, only live trees without decorations, tinsel or other man made materials.

Help us make this a success. Remember these trees will be used for shelters, treats and enrichment for the animals so be aware of their safety. Thank you for helping us give them a happy and healthy holiday treat!
