Continue reading to review the top 4 recommended uses for tree branches, and learn some fantastic options for tree branch disposal.
☑ Wood Chips
Whether you have a large or small amount of tree branches, turning them into wood chips for the purpose of mulch and landscaping décor is a perfect solution. Simply rent a wood chipper from your local home improvement or hardware store. Since shredding branches is easy and you should only need the equipment for a day, rental prices are very reasonable. Just be sure to follow all safety procedures and guidelines!
If you have an indoor or outdoor fireplace or fire pit, then using leftover tree branches for kindling is the obvious choice! Dead branches are the perfect material to start and maintain a warm, cozy fire. Keep them bundled with string and store them in a cool, dry place (or wherever you store your logs). Then you will have extra firewood for months to come!
☑ Garden Support
In the spring and summer time, using leftover tree branches for newly-planted or growing flowers is very useful. Use yarn and branches to support delicate and growing plants in your garden. This gives them the stability they need to grow strong and healthy.
☑ Home Décor
If you are into the rustic, outdoorsy look, then using leftover tree branches to make unique home décor is right for you. Use your imagination and tie bundles together with decorate ribbon, string, and ornaments to create beautiful wreaths, overhead door décor, wall decor, place settings, and even door mats! These make great patio and shed décor too!
