The One Place In New Jersey Where Christmas Trees Go To Die
Approximately 95 million American households have Christmas trees this year; about 25 million of those trees are real (genuine wood) trees. While many trees get thrown in the trash, many are recycled. The trees are used for a variety of purposes including feeding goats, rebuilding and supporting sand dunes, and creating habitats for fish. In one New Jersey county, old Christmas trees are used to help give new trees and plants life.
