A Year-Round Gift – Christmas tree recycling

A Year-Round Gift – Christmas tree recycling – Brief Article

After tree lovers take down the holiday lights, many head for the recycling station. About 66 percent of consumers say they recycle their Christmas trees in a private or community program, according to a National Christmas Tree Association survey. Many of those trees become mulch for gardens, parks, or animal stalls. But some communities leave trees whole and use them as sand and soil erosion barriers.
