Not Quite Wordless Wednesday: Let’s Talk Tree Disposal!


The latest issue Organic Gardening and Farming Magazine is out! I have an article on page 19 called “Finding Christmas at Alouette Tree Farm”. I don’t know what happened with the layout, it looks a little off, but I greatly enjoyed writing this article! A special thanks to Janelle Hildebrand for helping me with some background on the farm. We had a lot of fun at Alouette Tree Farm, and came home with a magnificent tree! I wrote about it HERE. The article is a similar piece to the one I posted last week, so I won’t repeat it today. Do check out the links if your interested.

In the mean time it’s never to early to start thinking about what your going to do with your Christmas tree, once the season has past. Most nurseries and tree farms offer chipping services. In Port Coquitlam Art Knapps takes the trees for chipping by donation. Or you can visit the Port Coquitlam Fire Fighters, #1 Fire Hall, 1725 Broadway Street. They will be taking trees by donation for the BC Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund.

If you are planning on disposing of your tree in your Green Bin then take a look at this video made by our local Mayor Greg Moore and Councilor Darrell Penner on how to properly dispose of your Christmas tree.

    Unfortunately we have a dreaded fake tree. I actually feel quite guilty about that but we've had it forever. If I was to go back in time, I'd stick with the real deal.

  2. @Marilyn We had a fake tree for exactly 2 years while apartment living. I think I gave it to a friend who helped us move out. I wanted to make sure it didn't end up in use again at our new house!

  6. @meemsnyc I'm pretty fond of the place myself :)@The Garden Ms.S Thank you! Merry Christmas to you too!@Paul Garden it would be nice if every community had a similar program. Lucky for us those fire fighters are always near by if necessary!
