With many of us taking down our Christmas trees over the next few days it seems such a waste to throw them out at the street for garbage pick up.
I found this great article 4 Ways to Re-cycle your Christmas Tree for Wildlife. This article was written by the National Wildlife Federation.
I thought the 4 tips were great and easily done and are ways to give back to the soil as well as to nature.
The one where you decorate it with foods for the birds and squirrels would really be fun as well as interesting to observe over the winter.
Definitely consider these tips if you have a real tree to remove from your house.
Mother nature will thank you.
