Recycling Christmas Trees
After the holidays, I always feel a little sad about all the discarded Christmas trees. I feel sad that this once thriving tree was cut down to be enjoyed inside for a few short weeks. I was in Carl Shurz park the other day and saw that they were recycling the old Christmas trees by turning them into mulch to be used within the parks grounds. Every year the city parks department organizes a Mulchfest where the Christmas trees are collected and chipped into mulch. It's great that the trees are reused in this way, giving them a second life. And it makes the park smell so amazing with pine everywhere!
