What to Do with Your Christmas Tree After the Holidays

As we enter mid-January, you’re probably asking yourself: what do I do with this Christmas tree?

You’ve had it sitting in the same place for almost a month, and now that the holidays are over, it seems to just be taking up space.

Well, as it turns out, there are plenty of things you can do with your old Christmas tree!

Christmas Tree DisposalMulch it

Mulching your tree has quickly become one of the more popular options this holiday season—it allows the tree to be recycled and reused in your community, to either grow more trees or help out in composting.

What you’ll need to do is find a mulcher nearby, and get your tree over to them. Or you can mulch it yourself for your garden. Either way, you’re good to go.

Chop it up

Don’t forget that your tree is also a great source of firewood—and if you have a fireplace, then this comes in handy during the cold winter months.

You can also combine the two: chop up the wood for firewood, and then leave the rest for mulching or composting purposes.

Think creatively here! Every part of the tree can be used.

Use it for landscaping

Here’s one that we’ve always thought was kind of neat: your Christmas tree can be used to help decorate your outdoor landscaping. Whether it’s turning the branches into pathway edging, or using the wood as an outdoor display, you can continue the spirit (and smell) of Christmas for a few months.

What we love here at Spruce Point Tree Farm is that there are so many uses for your Christmas tree other than a decoration for the holidays.
