If you haven't already, it's time to take down your live Christmas Tree. Dried-out Christmas Trees are a fire danger and should not be left in your home or garage.
After removing all lights, ornaments, tinsel and decorations, we've listed below some sustainable methods of Christmas Tree disposal:
- Garden: Cut off the branches & cut up the trunk to place in your garden. Your garden will thank you later with an abundance of produce.
- Mulch: Remove the branches and shake off the dead needles. Dead needles will decompose as mulch in your yard.
- Pond/Lake: If you have a pond or lake on your property, dump your whole tree into it. Old pine and spruce provides a natural decomposing habitat for fish and will attract algae for them to eat.
- Firewood: Use only the tree trunk (no branches or needles) and chop up into firewood. BONUS: you will burn off a few of those Christmas cookies while chopping! You may need to let the firewood dry for a few months before it's dry enough to burn.
- DIY Project: Use your bandsaw to cut the tree trunk into coasters. Make sure to sand and seal with Anchorseal 2 to prevent sap from leaking. These make great gifts throughout the year!
If all else fails, the City of Columbus has your back. They offer free Christmas Tree pick up on your yard waste collection day.
- Make sure to remove all lights, ornaments, tinsel and decorations.
- If the tree is taller than 8 foot, cut it in half.
- Do not place in a plastic bag.
- Place your tree curbside where the city collects the yard waste bags.
