Tree-mendous tree chipping service

More than 10 tonnes of wood has been collected at free Christmas tree chipping sessions organised by West Oxfordshire District Council.

A total of 10.25 tonnes (10,250kg) of tree chippings were collected at sessions in Burford, Carterton, Charlbury, Chipping Norton, Eynsham, Long Hanborough, Tackley, Witney and Woodstock earlier this month.

The chippings are now on their way to be turned into eco-friendly biomass energy to create heat and power.

Cllr David Harvey, Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “We are very pleased people have used this free service and I would like to thank everyone who brought along their Christmas trees. This has meant that hundreds of trees have been diverted from landfill and will be put to really good use.”

The Council would like to thank Goodwood Tree Care for supporting the sessions.
