Has anyone found a good use for old Christmas trees? woodworking or otherwise? I haven't decided what to do with the last two trees yet, they are currently sitting in the woodpile. ideas:
-add to hugelkulture
-make walking stick
-burn

We always just compost and hugel them

Seems like when they trim the branches, to make the trees thicker, the trunk gets really knotty. I have never tried cutting one lengthwise but it might be kind of cool looking wood?
