Recycle Christmas Trees To Benefit Birds

Evergreen trees are good for protecting bird feeders from predators and wind. After the holidays, recycle your old Christmas tree to help the birds.

Great idea! I was just planning on tying mine on a tree close by…… The lazy way. The ground is frozen - is insanely hard anyway and don't have a post hole digger!

Glad you found a way that works for your conditions. I'm sure the birds are too.

I garden for the pollinators.

This is maybe a little late for this year, but I've taken a neighbor's Christmas tree that was put out in the trash and cut it up into mulch for those plants which will enjoy their soil being a little more acid.

I just cut the branches off with a pair of pruners and arranged the boughs beneath the plants as if they are a wreath -- looks quite pretty and I personally love the pine aroma.

This takes a small problem (an Christmas tree that is no longer wanted) and turns it into something of value in your yard.
