What To Do With Your Old Christmas Trees

Christmas is almost here, which means it’s about time to start thinking of how to dispose of your Christmas trees. If you are like most people, us included here at Heritage Hill Nursery, dumping the used Christmas tree by the curb or burn pit is as much a part of the tradition as getting the tree itself. Browsing on the internet I discovered that there are other uses for that discarded tree. Here are just a few of my favorites:

  • Turn it into mulch
  • Use it as compost
  • Use the branches as extra coverage for tender plants during the winter
  • Decoration
  • Animal habitat
  • Bird feeder
  • Turn it into potpourri
