It's so sad to see discarded Christmas trees waiting for the garbage truck. Nothing lasts forever, but there's still some use in that cut tree. One of my favorite uses is to prop it up near the house and use it to hang a bird feeder. The birds like to feed somewhere where there's cover and I don't have to walk so far in the snow to fill the feeder.
Our Trees & Shrubs Guide, Nessa Richins, suggests sharing your tree with the fish in your pond. Nessa has several other ideas in her list of 6 Ways to Recycle Your Christmas Tree. Do you have any suggestions to add? How have you recycled your cut Christmas tree?
