The Fort Collins Nursery also offers some advice on a few things you can do with your tree that could benefit the environment such as:

  • Letting your tree dry out in the back yard, then using the needles for mulch and cutting the tree up for firewood.
  • Staking your tree in the yard with popcorn or seeds on it to make a winter bird feeder.
