The last of Bowen's Christmas trees pass through the wood chipper for a good cause

The money Bowen Waste Solutions would have paid for chipping the trees will be donated to the Bowen Island Health Centre Foundation

The last vestiges of islanders’ Christmases at home passed through a wood chipper Tuesday morning.

Bowen Island Tree Service was at Bowen Island Recycling Depot sending the shapely saplings islanders had left in the bin outside the compound through the chipper. B.I. Tree Service, owned by Robert Clayton, donated the time for the chipping. Bowen Waste Solutions will donate the amount they would have paid for the service (a few hundred dollars) plus some extra money to the Bowen Island Health Centre Foundation. 

The chips from the chopped up trees will be spread around the Knick Knack Nook's new gardens.
