Christmas tree reuse

Georgia has the answer to the question, "Why hasn't somebody thought of a way to recycle used Christmas trees and enhance the environment somehow?" from the Home Forum page essay "More Than One Way to Steal a Tree," Jan. 3.

On a designated date about 150 sites across the state receive Christmas trees. At many locations a free tree seedling is traded for your discarded tree.

The discarded trees will be chipped into mulch, dropped into lakes and rivers to enhance fish breeding sites, and placed in natural areas to enhance wildlife habitats. Frances Y. King, Atlanta
