Re­cy­cle your Christ­mas tree

Garden Answers (UK) - - Celebrate -

Make sure real Christ­mas trees get a new lease of life:

Most coun­cils of­fer a Christ­mas tree col­lec­tion ser­vice where trees are chipped and made into mulch. Cut up or shred side branches into smaller sec­tions, then place on their own heap. The rot­ting nee­dles will pro­duce an er­i­ca­ceous com­post. Saw up larger branches and stack in a shady cor­ner to make a log pile – a shel­ter for all man­ner of in­sects.
