Save Discarded Christmas Trees in Sweden for the Fire!

Swedish energy experts at Växjö University in south central Sweden are calling for authorities to ”rescue” the 3 million Christmas trees being tossed out of Swedish homes these days with the end of the long jultide season.

Instead of letting the pines and firs end up in garbage dumps or in the gutter, the experts want to see a rounding up of the discarded trees – arguing that they could heat 120,000 homes for an entire year.
