Guilford County provides residents free disposal for live Christmas trees at the Guilford County Farm (formerly the Sheriff’s Prison Farm), located at 7315 Howerton Road, Gibsonville. The site is open from December 26th through January 15th.  Drop-off hours are Monday through Saturday 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. 

Here are a few things to remember:

  • Please remove all lights, decorations, bags, stands and covers from trees before dropping them off to be recycled.
  •  Wreaths, garland and artificial trees are not accepted. These items are made with wire and staples that make them unsuitable for the chipping equipment.
  • No business waste is accepted at this site.

Some towns and cities in Guilford County provide residential curbside collection of Christmas trees:
