Don't toss an unwanted artificial Christmas tree! Regardless of the reason, if it has realistic branches and will stand up, find a bare spot in your yard near a newly planted tiny tree, perhaps against a fence in the back yard. Dig a one foot hole for its trunk, fill with rocks and dirt, and enjoy it until the tiny new real tree matures!
You could also use the branches and shape them into a wreath to hang on your door.
I like your ideas. I have used the artificial trees in 2 other ways. I have cut off the top to a large one and then decorated it and placed in on my Dad's grave (I save it every year); I have also used the rest of it plus another to make a GIANT wreath for the front of the house which we also use each year.
I donated mine to the thrift store. I'm sure someone needs a good fake tree.

MANY PEOPLE WHO CAN'T AFFORD A TREE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ONE
That sounds like a terrific idea. One year I bought 10 two foot, pre-lit green trees to line the sidewalk. It would be great to leave them out all year long and possible decorate seasonally. I have young grandchildren and they would love to see the different color lights and deco.
