Christmas Tree Disposal

The stockings were all hung by the chimney with care and the tree trimmed exactly right.  But the day will soon come when we must face the inevitable.   How do we dispose of the Christmas tree?

Christmas tree Dec 2019In some parts of the the east coast, trees are taken down to the beach and used to help accrete sand there.  Here on South Carolina’s coast we have a dynamic shoreline and, according to our friendly coastal engineer, Tim Kana, the trees would eventually just end up washing away.  Never fear, however, because disposal is even easier than lugging it down to the beach.  Trees will be picked up right in front of your home on the regular Monday yard debris pick-up day.  Thank you all for taking care of our beautiful island!
