Whether you have a large Christmas tree or a smaller one, it’s a good idea to turn it into mulch rather than disposing of it in any other way. Burning your tree can be a good idea if you don’t have wood for your furnace, but most of the time that’s not the case. After the holidays, what you might need more is to tend to your home and garden, and your tree can contribute to that in ways you might not even suspect.
On the other hand, you’ll find there are many great benefits associated with turning your tree into mulch and feeding your garden in the process.
- There’s one less tree on the landfill. So you can be comforted by the fact that you’ve helped the environment to some small extent.
- Turning your tree into mulch will also help your garden and aides the application of a slow release fertilizer as well as provides items that would act as mulch.
- It will not only provide added nutrition to your garden, but also ensure that small animals and insects are better protected from the elements.
- It will also save you the hassle of a trip that you’d have to take in order to dispose of your tree in a sustainable way offsite.
