Once we are done with our lovely Christmas trees what do we do with them? Throw them to the dumpster? Why not get some extra added benefits from them instead of wasting the resource?

Daniel Jones, Ph.D., has a few tips on how to recycle your Christmas spirit. Dr. Jones says valuable nutrients and other potential environmental benefits of discarded trees are lost when they end up in landfills either by drop-off or city trash services because trees do not decompose properly in landfill conditions.

He recommends three recycling options that will benefit the environment as well as people who use the land for outdoor activities and personal enjoyment.

We always took ours to the tree chipping service offered by our city government, or we put it in back of our house to serve as hiding places for wildlife before it returned to the earth.
