Christmas Tree Recycling Available at UBC Botanical Garden


In partnership with SPEC (Society Promoting Environmental Conservation), we will take your Christmas tree and recycle it for a suggested donation of $5. Your contribution directly supports students at Britannia Community Elementary School. Donations will contribute to the replacement of damaged garden beds, compost material and the creation of pollinator-friendly habitat.



Drop off trees at UBC Botanical Garden Dec 26 – Jan 8, 10 am – 2 pm

Please remove tinsel & decorations before dropping off as tree mulch will be used on garden trails.

    January 8th is the last official day for drop off, however, if you’re able to drop off on January 9th, in the designated drop off area behind the Garden Centre (slightly east of the Garden entrance gates), it should be completely fine! Thank you for thinking of the Garden and for bringing your Christmas tree in for chipping.
