Tree chipping fundraiser benefitting Thunderbird Elementary School

Community members are encouraged to drop off Christmas trees for recycling at UBC Botanical Garden, where they will be chipped into mulch and used on garden trails. Decorations, including tinsel, must be removed. No yard trimmings please as they may contain invasive plants and can harm the botanical garden.

Proceeds from this fundraiser will support Thunderbird Elementary School’s food garden expansion* to add a three-bin cedar composter and small orchard garden. The food garden at Thunderbird Elementary is a Society Promoting Environmental Conservation (SPEC) school garden project.

Tree chipping is generously supported by UBC Plant Operations.

Questions? Please call 604.822.3928.

*Funds may be used for other school garden purposes as needed.
