RSPB Scotland's Molly Martin shares some ideas for what do to with your Christmas tree when twelfth night rolls around.
Make your Christmas tree go the distance
Twelfth night happens on the 5th or 6th of January, depending on which traditions one follows. It is traditional to take down all your Christmas decorations, including the tree, by twelfth night, or you’ll have bad luck for the rest of the year!
It can be sad taking down the tree and fairy lights and cards that have been brightening up your midwinter, but all is not lost, and it’s a great chance to start sprucing up your garden for the year to come.
How to use your tree after Christmas:
Living trees can happily be kept in a pot outside ready for next year. Easy.
Plastic trees can be dismantled and shoved back under the bed or at the back of a cupboard for another year, waiting for the moment when you remember how fiddly they can be to put back together. Simple.
And there are plenty of things you can do with your tree if you’re not keeping it for next year too!
You can take your Christmas tree to any of our recycling centers for free. If it's a real tree, put it in the green waste container. If it's a fake tree you can put that in the container for metals. But if it's still in good condition, you could donate it to one of our Reuse shops instead.Consider recycling or repurposing option below if your artificial tree still has some joy to spread.I always play this Happy glass PC game, one of the best free to play games I played. It is very exciting, challenging and fun.

They are also being used to stabilise the dunes at the West Sands in St Andrews, not by growing them but using them as a sort of binding agent. They are being placed in depressions in the sand and covered over with additional sand. The BBC covered it. Ian
