Ottawa goats want your used Christmas trees

Postby trailblaze on Sun Dec 28, 2014 8:11 pm

Do you live in Ottawa and want to get rid of your natural Christmas tree? A pack of goats will gladly take it off your hands. Rather than putting the trees out on the curb, Ottawa-area residents can take them to the Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge, where a dozen or so goats will feast on them. “They have a lot of flavour,” says Lynne Rowe, founder of the non-profit refuge, where goats are already chowing down on conifers donated by a Canadian Tire store.

Great idea and I am sure that if people did some checking they would find similar programs or companies that will mulch them for you. Beats the heck of just throwing them in the local dump and much better for the environment. So come on people, check it out if you can donate or mulch them.

Hamilton ON municipal collection program will collect trees that have all tinsel and decorations removed and placed at the curb during two weeks in January. They are used to form carp barriers in the Royal Botanical Gardens' water areas.

Never knew that goats could eat pine trees! If they like blue spruce, I'll need to know for when the branches drop off!
