2011 Holiday Season is over
If you are like you me and live in the Montgomery County or Bucks County area you may be wondering how to get rid of your Christmas tree in the best possible way. It is sad to say but the 2011 Holiday Season is over and we welcome in the new year.
Some towns have programs where you can drop of your tree to be turned in to chips for mulch or landscaping. You can also use the tree for holiday craft projects or to landscape your own home.
Before placing a Christmas tree outside, be sure to remove all decorations first. Lights, garland, tinsel and all metal should be removed from the branches. Be sure to never use tree remnants in a fireplace or wood stove, as suggested by the National Christmas Tree Association.
