Cut Trees


When it is time to remove the tree from the house, it’s a great idea to put your tree into a large disposal bag. This keeps the mess to a minimum with any needles being restricted to the one place.


At Home:

If you have access to a chipper or shredder then you can turn your tree into garden mulch and use it to improve the soil around your plants and fruit trees and help suppress weeds.

At the Garden Centre:

When buying your Christmas tree ask the retailer for details - many Garden Centres offer Christmas tree recycling facilities.

Your Local Council:

Most councils collect Christmas trees at the beginning of January. Contact your local council or check their website for their collection dates after the Christmas season and simply leave your tree on the kerbside on the correct day. Trees are usually shredded into chippings which are then used locally in parks or woodland areas.
