Feeling chipper? Mulchfest underway in Prospect Park
The smell of pine is in the air as Mulchfest begins across New York City.
News 12’s Phil Taitt was in Prospect Park where many Christmas trees are being chipped by the Parks Department into a nutrient-rich mulch for people to take home.
Organizers say 5,000 trees were chipped last year in Prospect Park alone.
Mulchfest continues next weekend as well for those not yet ready to let go of the holiday season.
