Aside from all coming from forest products, what do christmas trees, wreaths, decorative pine cones, and firewood all have in common?
All can unintentionally spread forest pests!
So as the holidays wind down, make sure that you follow a couple of easy guidelines to dispose of these things in environmentally sound ways.
- Don't just drag an old christmas tree or wreath out into the woods to "let it rot" out there. It could have pests that will emerge later to infest your backyard or woodlot trees.
