Christmas trees are one of the most important decorations for the festive season, dating back to the 16th century in Germany.
Having a natural Christmas tree from Weston Sawmill looks spectacular, but it’s important to remember the right ways to dispose of your tree once the sleigh bells have stopped ringing.
Here at Weston Sawmill, we are extremely environmentally conscious, which is why we are going to share some of the best ways to dispose of Christmas trees.
Environmentally Conscious Christmas Trees
Our range of Christmas trees are homegrown at our nursery in Weston-under-Lizard and are much easier to dispose of than artificial trees that will usually end up on landfill sites.
Here are some ways to benefit the environment when getting rid of your Christmas tree –
Make Firewood – If you have a fireplace in your home, you can use the wood from your tree to warm the house on those cold January days.
Use as Mulch – The needle-like leaves from your Christmas tree can be used as mulch in your garden, as they don’t collect mold and decompose quite slowly.
Donate Your Tree – Once Christmas is over your tree could still prove useful to your local farm or zoo, as it can be used as treats or a plaything for the animals.
Find Christmas Tree Collection Service – Some charities (depending on your location) run a Christmas tree collection service, which will ensure your tree is recycled and used for other purposes.
