Be Sure to Recycle Your Tree This Holiday Season

The seasons are changing and the holidays are right around the corner. Even with the hustle and bustle that the holidays bring, there are still ways to be environmentally friendly this year.

Follow these easy recycling tips for a truly eco-happy holiday:
  • The boughs of the tree make a great protector from frost and cold. Simply cut them off of the trunk and lay them over your flowers and outdoor plants.
  • Many local parks and recycling centers accept trees after the holidays. They turn the trees into wood chips or compost, so you can feel good about helping gardeners have healthier landscapes.
  • Balled and burlap trees are growing in popularity because after the holidays, they can be planted.
