Fall is an excellent time to trim trees and shrubs in your landscape here in Highlands Ranch! But once you do a bit of cleanup, what do you do with all those branches and limbs? Rather than putting these items out with your trash, why not recycle them? The Highlands Ranch Metro District invites residents to recycle discarded tree branches and other woody plant materials at its Highlands Ranch fall tree recycling event Saturday, Nov. 9.
Tree limbs less than 12 inches in diameter and woody plant materials will be accepted at the recycling event. Please keep in mind, the following items will not be accepted: finished lumber, non-woody material, grass clippings, sod and root balls. You may need to put these items out with the trash! All discarded material will be chipped into mulch and given away free to homeowners or reused in parks and parkways in the community. This can be a great way to spruce up your yard and then help out the environment while beautifying the community at the same time.
The Highlands Ranch fall tree recycling event will take place Nov. 9 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the parking lot at Shea Stadium at Redstone Park, 3280 Redstone Park Cir., Highlands Ranch.
If you have questions about winter tree care, a great resource is the Metro District’s website Forestry page. An article written by a Metro District forestry technician details three practices suited for the winter months, mulching, structure pruning and transplanting. The website provides additional articles that give tree care tips and information for the year-round care of landscape.
In addition to the Highlands Ranch fall recycling event, the Metro District offers Christmas tree recycling from late December through mid-January. Highlands Ranch does so much to provide service and support to the community, no wonder it is such an awesome place to live! I have lived and worked in Highlands Ranch for 20 years now.
