Once Christmas is over, it’s easy to disregard your tree, but there are lots of ways you can recycle your Christmas tree and keep it going.

  • Of course, if your Christmas tree has still got its roots intact you can always replant your tree to keep a bit of Christmas in your garden all year round. 
  • If you’ve got a log fire, you can also cut up the trunk and use it to keep your house warm. Please note: don’t burn the branches, since they can send off sparks! 
  • You could also cut off all the branches, and use the trunk to edge off part of your garden. 
  • A Christmas tree makes a fantastic bird feeder. Simply put the tree outside and place anything from your normal bird feed, to old bread and dried fruit in mesh bags. A wide variety of birds will be attracted to your garden for food and shelter.

Christmas may be over, but with these ideas, you can make the festive season last a little longer.
