As custodians of the environment, Downey Trees’ Greenwaste Recycling Division ensures debris, such as unwanted plants, and pruning and leaf material produced by landscape and tree companies like us, do not end up in landfills but are processed into a usable end product.

We annually recycle approximately 400,000 cubic yards of debris. Since starting this division in 1997, we have recycled enough greenwaste product to fill the Georgia Dome approximately five times. Some of the useable products we produce through this process are wood fuel utilized by power plants, decorative wood mulches and quality planting compost mixes.


With a fleet of four 50 yard grapple trucks, one 45 yard grapple truck, six road tractors with 8 trailers and a host of heavy support equipment, this division is capable of handling any grinding, recycling or clearing project.
