Recycled Christmas Trees in Demand

| December 21, 2007

If you are like more than 30 million other folks in North America, you enjoy the Christmas season in the company of a farm-raised tree, but just a few days from now, you’ll want it out of the house. A few days later, you’ll want it out of your yard, too. What do you do with the tree once Christmas is over?

While it might seem convenient to just let the trash collector haul the tree off to the landfill, that’s the last place you want it to go. Recycled or repurposed Christmas trees play a significant role in everything from energy production to creating wildlife habitat and sometimes provide raw materials for the pharmaceutical industry.
