WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR EX-CHRISTMAS TREE

Many of us have a problem ditching Christmas trees after the fun’s all over. It’s already D AY ONE: 2023. Making sure all the ornaments have been removed. Check again. You’re bound to fine some hidden away where you can’t see 'em. Pack them away until the next Christmas comes along.


You’ve got needles falling off on the living room floor. You toss the tree out the back door and try to forget about it.


Each time you go in the backyard, there it is, an eyesore.


Look at it this way: Birds fly into it and disappear in what’s left of the greenery. Think of it as a winter habitat for birds and other small wildlife. You can help them out by filling pinecones with peanut butter and put them in there.


Your old Christmas tree becomes a habitat for them over the winter months with evergreens offering a safe haven for birds and small animals.


Author’s comment: What might be worth looking into: Does your municipality have a drop-off site where you leave your tree, along with others doing the same, which are chipped up and used as compost? Now that’s a bright idea.

Happy New Year. And let’s make it a good one.
