A few days after Christmas, the tree turns yellow and quickly finds a place on the sidewalks. Rather than abandon them, the town hall of Paris and Ikea propose to the public to come and deposit them so that they are transformed into compost. In Paris For the second year in a row, the Paris City Hall is launching the "Give your tree a second life" operation. Parisians are invited to drop off their Christmas tree between January 2 and February 1 at collection points located in 95 parks and gardens in the capital. Among the parks participating in this recycling are that of Monceau (8th), Belleville (20th), Buttes-Chaumont (19th) and Montsouris (14th). The deposited trees will have been stripped of their decorations beforehand and must be placed in a bag. They will serve as "mulching" for the various parks. The services of the Department of Green Spaces and the Environment of the town hall of Paris will have crushed them to make a compost to spread on the surface of the beds. The trees thus valued will enrich the soil by decomposing. Last year, 15,000 trees were recycled. Ikea stores For the sixth consecutive year, Ikea has launched its "Acting at the Root" operation, in partnership with the National Forest Office (ONF). Customers who bought a Nordmann tree at a price of 20 euros can bring it back to the store for a 19 euros voucher. The tree will then be transformed into compost. Customers are invited to bring their tree back after the holiday season, between January 2 and 11, 2009. In 5 years, this operation has raised 1.25 million euros invested in 30 local management projects forest or public awareness reception areas.
