Once your holiday decorations go back into storage, it is time to deal with your bare real Christmas tree.

Give it a second, even third life by recycling the bits and bobs you would normally throw away.

Christmas tree

Tree recycling

Check for recycling resources in your community. Many municipalities have special pickups for Christmas trees, which are then chipped, shredded and made available for citizens to use in their landscapes.
