Disposing Of Christmas Trees
After the Christmas holiday, how to dispose Christmas trees might be a question for your family. If you did use a real Christmas tree instead of a fake one, you should try your best to recycle it instead of throwing directly into the bin. Currently most cities have some special service to dispose trees in an environmental friendly way. They can be shredded as mulches or as a tree to attract birds.
Before recycling your Christmas trees, the first thing you need to do is to remove all decorative objects on the tree such as light bulbs etc. All non-organic objects should be removed. Since most tree recycling service have requirement on the tree size, you might need to cut the tree into several pieces to meet their needs. Usually the tree should be collected after two weeks from the Christmas holiday.
In recent years, the tree recycling program has become more and more popular in most communities because it is a good option to protect the environment. The most common method of recycling is to make mulch from the shredded tree chips. You can also sink the tree into the lake to make a perfect refuge for fishes. If you plant them in your backyard, they can make a good bird feeder for you to attract birds. If the root of the tree is still healthy, you can plant it into your yard when the holiday is over. In mild climate, Christmas trees have a high survival rate. The most important thing to remember is avoid putting your tree into a stove. They can emit flammable substance when burning and make it risky of fire.
