What to do with that once-live tree
Christmas is over, and you're left packing up the lights and ornaments and wondering what to do with the Christmas tree. Put it out by the curb for trash pick-up? Maybe. Put it in a corner of the yard and believe it may break down? Not in your lifetime. So what?
Pickyourownchristmastree.org claims many communities have recycling services to put your old Christmas tree to new life as a wildlife sanctuary, on a sand dune to protect the beach, chipped for mulch or as a bird feeder.
