Ours certainly is.
But it’s not too late to do fun and beneficial things with the yet-to-be-disposed-of trees.
Check out some of these ideas:
Some local farms appreciate donated trees. Turns out that goats love them! So find a local goat farm and see if it wants your tree.
Tree trimmings make excellent wreaths so try your hand at making a winter-y themed wreath.
Make a natural potpourri. Just grab a bunch of clippings, a quarter of an orange, a cinnamon stick and a few whole cloves and mix with water. Turn the stove on low and enjoy the seeping aroma. Do keep an eye on the water level though.
Put it in the backyard and load it up with bird friendly food. It’ll act as a sanctuary for small birds.
Have a bonfire.
I’ll be making another wreath and some potpourri before it’ll go in the backyard laden with treats for the birds.
We’ll bird watch until the snow melts away in the spring, then we’ll have a bonfire.
Happy New Year!
