I love Mulchfest.
It's a fresh new year, so what better way to kick it off than to grind up those old Christmas trees and unleash the heavenly scent of evergreen across Tompkins Square Park? It's also the only time I ever get to see a wood-chipper, so that's exciting in itself.
Behold, the beast!
The result, a mountain of fragrant green mulch, which is used around the park.
Here is some video of the chipper in action:
