You will need your own tools to load the mulch. The six Treecycle collection sites are: Colorado Springs Memorial Park – Enter from Pikes Peak between Hancock and Union Baptist Road Trailhead – McLaughlin Road SW of Woodmen Falcon Trailhead – Old Denver Highway north of Baptist Cottonwood Creek Park – Montarbor just north of Dublin Sky Sox Stadium – Tutt just south of Barnes Rock Ledge Ranch – Garden of the Gods Park Entrance at 30th Street Extended TreeCycle is available at Rocky Top Resources, 1755 E Las Vegas Street. Rocky Top will accept trees Monday thru Saturday, December 28 thru January 30th from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is closed Sundays. There is a suggested tax deductible fee of $5.00. One-hundred percent of all money collected benefits community youth sports programs through El Pomar Youth Sports.
