7 ways to recycle your fresh Christmas tree

Posted: Updated:

As the New Year rings in, the Christmas tree starts to look a little stale.

So what is the best way to dispose of the fresh tree? Instead of kicking it to the curb, Dale K. shows you how to recycle it back to the garden.


1. Leave it outside as a fresh green decoration -- it'll stay green until March.

2. Place it by the grill to protect from wind

3. Use for fish in an outdoor pond

4. Use as a bird feeder by placing snacks for your favorite yard critters on the branches

5. Use branches to stake house plants and keep them aloft

6. Turn the trunk into a tomato growing stand

7. Trim boughs and place over your perennial garden
