Here's what's new!
A tree can only be planted and survive if two factors are met.
- The first is that the tree still has an intact and viable root system.
- The second is that the tree has been kept in a cool environment and watered when necessary.
If you do not plan on replanting your tree this season, there are options to recycle. The Flower Mound Parks and Recreation Division will offer free Christmas tree recycling from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. December 26 through January 8 at Gerault Park, 1200 Gerault Road. The recycling program will be offered to residents only, and will not be available to commercial Christmas tree businesses. Trees cannot be flocked, and must have all the nails and decorations removed as well. Lumber and trash will not be allowed. Residents who would like mulch are encouraged to bring their own containers. For more information, call 972.874.PARK.
