Christmas tree reuse

"Why hasn't somebody thought of a way to recycle used Christmas trees and enhance the environment?" Well, somebody has. The Boy Scouts in Bellingham, Wash., collect the trees at curbside. Then the trees are put through a chipper and the City Park Department uses the chips to mulch their roses and other plantings. The city of Vancouver, Canada, also puts trees through a chipper and even sells some of the chips for mulch. K. Niedhamer, Lummi Island, Wash.
