Now that Christmas is over, many people are ready to get rid of their real Christmas trees. The good news is, there are multiple options when it comes to the disposal of your tree. Here are a few helpful tips on your tree’s safe removal.

Recycling your Christmas tree is an environmentally friendly way to give back to nature. You can do so easily with a little bit of research. Contact your local forest preserve or park to donate your tree to them; they often place these trees at the bottoms of lakes as fish structures, or they are chopped up and used as mulch. If you live near the coast of North Carolina, many of NC’s beaches are asking for Christmas trees to help them rebuild the dunes that were diminished during this fall’s storms. Local recycling centers as well as local fire departments are also another option if you are interested in recycling your old Christmas tree.

If recycling your Christmas tree is not an option for you, there are few steps to follow first. First, be sure to remove all of the decorations from your tree. Then, cut your Christmas tree into smaller portions and place it into your garbage collection receptacle. Depending on where you live, you may be able to contact the local yard waste or recycling program to have them come pick up your tree curbside. This will ensure that they are properly disposed.
