◻️ Recycle Your Christmas Tree
◻️ 2024 Resolutions
Our local neighborhoods can be challenging because while some property owners never see any deer on their properties, others just cannot keep them at bay. Nevertheless, depending on your location, deer will typically enjoy an abundance and variety of food in the woods during the spring, summer, and fall months. But, while foraging for food in winter, your plantings will become irresistible if they should come across them. Based on the habits of the deer in your area, there are different options to help deter them all year- round. Winter deer control is another added service that we offer to our annual “green season” clients and can consist of wrapping, temporary fencing, and spraying of ornamental gardens.
WINTER PLANT HAZARDS
- Place it outside to give birds added safety.
- “Decorate” the tree with feeders, strung popcorn, or hang suet to feed the birds.
- Chip it into garden mulch.
- Use the cut branches to make a wreath or
- Lay them in the garden for extra insulation.
- Use the trunk for next year’s yule log.
- Compost it.
- Cut the trunk in slices to edge a garden or
- Use the wood slices to make rustic coasters.
- Donate it to a farm with alpacas or goats.
- Pine needles make fragrant sachets.
- Donate to a local Boy Scout troop who are collecting trees.
- Dunk it in the pond on your property to create an underwater fish habitat.
- Chop it for firewood (to be used outdoors only due to high sap content), then
- Add the ashes to your garden compost.
- Check with your trash collector or town recycling center to ask if they recycle trees.
“And now let us welcome the new year, full of things that have never been.”
