How can you obtain the best use of the Christmas tree after Christmas? I don’t want to throw it in the trash. Can it be used somehow in the garden?
Don’t throw your Christmas tree in the trash. It is best to turn an unnecessary tree into mulch, which, scattered under the plants, will stop the development of weeds and slightly acidify the soil. Perfect for blueberries, rhododendrons, azaleas and all other heather plants that grow best in acidic soil.
If you have a mechanical shredder (chipper), you can chop up its branches quickly, but first, better cut the tree into small pieces so that large branches do not block the machine.
You can also dump the twigs for compost or donate the tree to your local composting plant. Many of them take Christmas trees after the New Year and turn them into compost soil.
