The Anchorage Woodlot is closing for the year at 7 p.m. Sunday.
The Anchorage Soil and Water Conservation District woodlot is a transit point for natural woods, including trees and branches but no lumber or construction materials. The public can pick up firewood and mulch for free or drop off trees and brush by the truckload for $10.
Manager Ryan Stencel said the woodlot still had a large pile of trees, towering about four stories high, on the last day of operations, after people dropped off thousands of them because of recent wind storm damage.
"The theory is I'm going to close this thing tonight," Stencel said Sunday morning.
However, she did say there is a possibility the woodlot would reopen Oct. 5 and 6 to unload more of its surplus mulch.
The woodlot is located at the South Anchorage Sports Park off of C Street.
