Actually, in colder climates, Christmas tree branches make great mulch.
I "prune" all the trees left out on our block for the City's tree
recyclying program, and use the branches in my yard. In the spring, I
put all the branches on my raspberry bed to add to the permanent
mulch, but I used to use them as pea brush before I began growing
snap peas on a trellis.
One can also build all sorts of neat furniture, e.g. headboards,
benches with the trunks.
But Bill is quite right, "Recycle that Christmas tree."
