What to Do With Your Used Christmas Tree

Theses so much buildup, stress, time and money spend leading up to Christmas. So much to buy and organise. Presents, food, decorations, flowers, Christmas tree and much more. Before you know it, it’s all over. It can seem like a lot of effort for something that’s over in the blink of an eye.

From Christmas day there is typically a huge clean up operation. A cleanup you don’t really want to do until Boxing day but even then you may be entertaining again or have to go out and visit family or friends.

As Christmas continues to become a distant memory you have some decisions to make.

What are you going to do with the real Christmas tree that your bought? It was the pride your home during Xmas. There’s nothing better than sitting in the room where the tree resides and have just the Xmas tree lights on. It creates such a wonderful atmosphere.

If you purchased a real tree, it most likely wasn’t cheap and once it stripped bare of all it’s decorations, you need to do something with it.

These days, if something can be recycles then it should.

Here are some sound ideas for what you can do with your tree.

Get it recycled – Regardless of whether you its an artificial or a real Xmas tree, you don’t want to just throw it in the general household rubbish bin. Artificial can be taken down to your local recycling tip and your real trees can be chopped up and placed into your garden waste recycling bin.

Reuse It – If you were luck enough to have purchased a real tree then you have the option of planting it into your garden and make some feature from it. That said, you would have had to have purchased one with roots in order to replant it. Christmas trees are not going to really like a lot of sun some find a nice shady area in your garden. The best time for planting maybe spring so you can leave it in its pot. If you have a shed to keep it in for the time being then do that so your tree gets used to the conditions and not just planted when its cold.
