    Here’s what we do with our tree every year: Like you suggest, first it sits out on our deck as a refuge for the birds that visit our feeders. Our yard is a certified backyard wildlife habitat and though we have a lot of food, etc., we have few evergreens — just a native huckleberry bush — so adding a dense Douglas Fir is a big plus during the winter months. Once spring arrives and the tree is losing its needles, we shift it to the back corner, near our compost bins. There it sits until it’s completely bare. At that point, my hubby cuts off all the side branches and sections the trunk into logs which will become our Yule logs for our Winter Solstice fire.

    Even better is to by a tree ? with roots, you can put them in a pot and no dropping needles, it is recycling ♻ and you have a tree for next year. When it gets to big, sell it or keep in the front garden and come your winter festival, yuletide, Christ’smass, etc you have a ready made lawn decoration…..
    Think ? not just green.
