Green Your Holiday Tree.

What type of holiday tree do you have this year? Where did you purchase it? If you purchased a cut tree, how will you dispose of it in an Eco friendly manner?

This year we decided to purchase a trio of live potted trees that can be planted in our yard once the holiday is over. They are working out really well and we like them a lot more than I thought we would. I would highly recommend this option to anyone who has somewhere to plant the tree.

If you purchased a cut tree, please recycle it when you are finished with it. You can find recycling centers in your area at In the past when we have hiked and cut down a tree at our local sustainable mountain farm, we have taken our tree to our local gardening center and had it made into mulch that we used in our yard in the springtime.

If you are interested in a fake tree, I have seen quite a few very nice ones at our local thrift, check yours out and see what you can find.
Did you know, you can also rent a live tree? Yes, there is a Portland, Oregon based company called The Original Living Christmas Tree Company that will deliver and pickup your tree for around $80. Fab, fab, fab.

    Aw, wow! That’s really amazing-I didn’t realize that you could actually buy potted trees and plant them when you were done. I think that’s so awesome!

    My mother is highly allergic to real trees, so most of my life we have had a fake tree-Which is really fine by all of us. I just don’t see going out and cutting down a tree just for Christmas.

    I’ve always thought that was cool to buy the potted tree and plant it later. We have a fake tree for now. When we lived in Georgia the city would take the trees to put in lakes to make a kind of reef for the fish. 🙂

    Hi The Eclectic Element,
    I have to agree. I love the potted version, I think it will be neat to watch them grow year after year.

    Hi Tanya,
    Interesting, I have never heard of using holiday trees as a reef for fish. Neat.
