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.
