After the Christmas holidays and celebrations, millions of trees find their ways out on the streets or on the landfills. Instead of throwing away the used Christmas trees, you can convert it into something useful.
1. Fish Food
The best thing you can do is to drop your tree in the nearby pond or lake. This will act as a support for different types of fish to hold on and can also serve as feeders. Overtime algae will grow into the trees providing food for the fish.
Making mulch or compost out of your trees is a great way to reuse your Christmas tree. Mulch gives the ground many types of soil nutrients and keeps your backyard or garden area healthy. It also cases moisture in the roots of different plants in the cold winter season.
3. Bird Feeders
You can also plant the roots of the tree in your yard and hang different feeders and cups with bird food. These act as great bird feeders and also beautify your yard.
4. Cut the Wood for Fire
You can also get the trees cut into small logs of wood for fires. The fires should be lit outside and not inside as these trees may contain flammable sap. These wood are ideal for camping outside and for bonfires. They can also be sold to small shops of firewood.
5. Protection for Your Garden and Plants
The stems, branches and thin wood from the trees can be used for protection of your yard and garden. Lay all the branches on your garden as they will provide the optimum temperature for your plants and soil and also will not cause the roots to freeze in the winter months.
6. Ashes from the Wood
You can burn the trees and save the ashes of the wood. Spread the ashes on top of your garden as they contain many different kinds of nutrients such as lime and potassium which help the plants to grow healthy and thrive well. The ashes can also be mixed with the compost and added to the soil.
7. Turn It into Potpourri
The pine needles add a wonderful scent to your house and can be turned into exotic potpourri for your different vases. Cut off the pine needles, some branches and small parts of the tree stump. Mix in it a few spices such as cloves and cinnamon. Fill water up to halfway in the bowl and submerges the needles, stems and spices and turn on a low flame for an earthy fragrance. Let the water dry up and convert it into potpourri.
8. Animal Habitats
Winter is tough for small animals and birds which have to face harsh cold, rain and snow. Plant the tree in a corner of your garden and make small shelter houses and nests where the small birds and animals can hide from the cold.
