3. Recycle It

Thankfully, most communities have some type of tree-cycling center where you can drop the trees off to be recycled into mulch for landscaping, local hiking trails, or as part of an erosion prevention project. You can find a tree-cycling center in your area via Earth911.org. Many of programs even include curbside pickup of your Christmas tree.



4. Make a Change

Next year, instead of purchasing a tree that has been cut down, consider one of the many Christmas tree alternatives. You could rent or purchase a live potted Christmas tree, purchase a non-toxic reusable tree or decorate an indoor houseplant. You could even get creative using household objects to make a Christmas tree of sorts.

    very good suggestions! i know here in our city they have 1 day where they pick up trees and they take them and shred them for mulch for the city to use…I love that. LOVED that owl pic!

    best recycling of christmas trees is to use trees with roots in a pot: 1. it stands well 2. if you give it water like any other plant, it will remain green, will not burn easily, and 3. After the holiday, you plant the tree in your garden or give it to someone who has space.
    We actually have bought new trees every year and finally had a small forest on the North side of our house.
