Our community also chips them to make mulch. You can stick them in the backyard with birdseed ornaments and they get a bit of extra use for food and shelter for feathered friends in the winter. I also know bass fishermen who sink them upside-down at their favorite fishing hole, because the bass like to hide in the branches.
I view Christmas trees as many people do farm animals. They are raised for a purpose. We buy ours from a "cut your own" tree farm down the road and he replants baby trees in the spots left vacant. I like supporting a local business this way.
