Recycle Christmas Trees for Garden Supports

To further recycle your Christmas Tree (after giving it to the birds, of course!) is to use it in your garden during the growing season.

In past years I've used mine for supports for green beans or morning glories. Simply remove the branches with a pair of garden snips, leaving stubs between 6 and 12 inches in length, either lean it against a fence or support it in some ingenious way in the garden and plant your seeds at its base.


The vines will grow up the "tree" and use it for support. If your garden plot is large enough, ask your neighbours to give you their cast-off trees if they won't be using them. These supports will last much longer than just one growing season. Not only is this tip helpful, but artistic as well!
