Have a yen for an Xmas tree but don't have the $ or space? Then gather pine boughs (branches) to you from the local xmas tree stands and garden centers! Otherwise they are headed for the trash and they make lovely holiday arrangements with the look and smell of a tree, you can even decorate them with ornaments.
The tree lots I have seen charge for these "trimmings" And a pretty penny too. We had some pines on our green belt until last year that I was able to trim a couple of low hanging branches. And picked up the pine cones,alas they are gone now.GG Vi
