As the holidays have wrapped up, it’s getting time to get rid of that old, natural Christmas tree you used this year. The State Conservation Department has several suggestions that could help wildlife. Spokesman Jim Low suggests turning the old tree into a feeder with the branches still attached. He says the songbirds need that protection. Low says old Christmas trees also make for a good fish habitat, with several tied together sunk just below the surface to act as a crappie bed. He says if you live in a rural area, trees made into a brushpile are a good home for rabbits. Finally, Low says if you cannot give your old tree to wildlife, at least have it turned into mulch so it doesn’t take up room at a landfill.
