Once again, local Boy Scout troops are offering Christmas tree-cycling in the Mountlake Terrace area.

Tree recycling will be available in Mountlake Terrace on the following days, times and locations:

Troop 61

Troop 61 will have tree recycling stations at three locations this year on Jan. 6 and 7.

A $10 donation for each tree is requested.

Trees collected will be recycled into natural wood chips for use in landscaping and garden beds throughout the local community.
