There’s no greater symbol of the Christmas season than the humble tree. Its pine scent evokes visions of falling snow and curling up by the fireplace. Hanging ornaments on its branches brings to life memories of Christmas past. The tree is the centerpiece of all festivities, photos, and lasting memories.
But what happens to the tree once the presents are unwrapped, the photos are taken, and the Christmas ham is eaten?
Whether you take the ornaments and lights off your tree on December 26 or you wait for the new year, it’s important to properly dispose of your Christmas tree.
