With Christmas trees currently decked with baubles and twinkly lights, it may seem a little early to be thinking of ways of disposing of them after the festivities are over – but Langford Lakes Christmas Tree Farm is looking ahead.
The farm at Langford Budville is offering to recycle all fresh Christmas trees – free – and giving away the mulch for garden compost.
Reg Hendy from Langford Lakes Christmas Tree Farm, explained: “Decoration-free natural Christmas trees can be taken to any recycling site for composting. But if people can’t get to one of these drop off points they can bring their tree to us. There will be an allocated drop off area for the trees and we will shred them between 3rd and 22nd January 2019.
“After the trees have been shredded, they will be composted and turned into mulch and this will be available for people to collect so that they can use it on their own gardens. Mulch is great to use on flower beds because it suppresses weeds and it also helps during dry spells to keep the ground moist and warmer in winter.
“For people who would like to collect some mulch to use on their own gardens we are asking that they contact us direct to arrange collection.”
