Tree Recycling Offered to Highlands Ranch Residents, Denver Realtor reports

With the arrival of fall, it’s time to prune your trees and shrubs. But before you place tree branches and other woody plants out for trash collection, consider recycling these materials at the Highlands Ranch Metro District’s recycling event Sunday, Oct. 9 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Shea Stadium parking lot, 3280 Redstone Park Circle.

Tree limbs less than 12 inches in diameter and woody plant materials will be accepted at the recycling event. The following items will not be accepted – finished lumber, non-woody material, grass clippings, sod and root balls. In addition to tree recycling, free mulch will be available to Highlands Ranch residents.

If you have questions about the proper way to prune your tree, visit the Metro District’s website at and go to the Parks & Open Space page. Metro District Forestry Technician Caleb Palmer demonstrates the proper way to prune your tree in a new video short featured on the website. If you have further questions it is recommended you contact a certified arborist.

The Metro District will also host a Christmas tree recycling event from late December through mid-January. For more information about tree recycling in Highlands Ranch, please call 303-791-2710.
