Top Christmas Tree Disposal related questions
Christmas tree disposal is usually done after the holidays, but don’t wait until your tree has dried out before you decide to recycle it. Fire hazards increase as Christmas trees and their needles dry out. Keep live trees in your home for no more than four weeks. During this time, you should also water your tree regularly.
In general, flocked trees cannot be used for compost. Flocked trees are those Christmas trees that are made to look as if they have snow on them. While flocked trees are undeniably pretty and capture that holiday winter magic, they already have chemicals on them due to the artificial snow and will not be ideal for recycling.
If your artificial tree is already frayed and broken, it might be time to replace it. Keep in mind that, like flocked trees, artificial Christmas trees are not accepted in most recycling centers because they are made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). You can use garbage bags to dispose of an artificial Christmas tree. But there are many ways to repurpose a Christmas tree, such as creating wreaths, centerpieces, and napkin rings.
Yes, but the process can be really tricky. If your Christmas tree’s roots are still intact, and it hasn’t stayed in your warm home for more than ten days, you may transfer it to a cold garage or shed after the holidays. Doing so will allow your tree to adjust to outdoor conditions. It will then re-enter dormancy and your tree can be replanted after several days. Taskers may also help with gardening tasks like planting flowers and trimming shrubs.

What do Christmas tree disposal services include?
Packing up your Christmas tree is something you can do by yourself, but wouldn’t it be more convenient to have a reliable Tasker do it for you? Below, we listed down the different kinds of Christmas tree removal services you can book on Airtasker.
Tree cleanup and removal
Once all the presents are opened and the holiday feasts are over, it’s time to let go of your Christmas tree. Before anything else, all the ornaments, lights, tinsel, and garlands should be removed from the tree. These items will then be safely boxed and stored for next year’s holiday celebrations. The next step is to place the tree in a bag and bring it outside. Christmas tree bags are available in most hardware stores, but if you don’t have the time to get one, you can ask your chosen Tasker to bring one for you for a hassle-free service.
Real Christmas tree disposal
Depending on the state and community you live in, your Tasker may leave your tree at the curb for your neighborhood’s scheduled tree pickup. If you want to ensure that this is a viable option, you may check online if there are Christmas tree pickups near you.
Another option is for your Tasker to drive the tree down to a local treecycling drop-off station. Many towns shred and recycle Christmas trees to produce mulch, which is useful for gardening in city parks. Christmas trees may also be donated to organizations that can make good use of them. These organizations include zoos, wildlife preserves, wetland restoration efforts, and soil erosion programs.
Artificial Christmas tree disposal
Unlike real Christmas trees, artificial trees last longer and may be used for many years. Once it’s time to replace it, disposing of artificial trees is also different from real ones. Your Tasker may simply pack it up in a trash bag and throw it away in a bin. If your tree is too large, your hired specialist may cut it up into small pieces to fit inside a trash container. But if your Christmas tree is still in good condition, you can donate it to a nursing home, orphanage, thrift store, or charity organization that can repurpose your tree.
