BROOKINGS – The real Christmas trees that added special magic to this year's holiday season can now find a second purpose by recycling, said SDSU Extension Forestry Specialist John Ball during a recent iGrow Radio Network Interview.
Ball says the easiest second use for real Christmas tree is as a bird feeder, stuck in a snow bank.
"Hang bird feed on them, because it makes a wonderful perch, provides a little hiding cover, which birds like," he said. "The birds will find it and utilize it for the rest of the winter, because they do like a little cover when they are out there feeding."
