Ideas for recycling or reusing trees and leaves.


  • Leaves from trees could be collected and mulched down in a plastic bag with holes in it for one to two years. You can then use the leaf mould in your garden border

  • You could use larger branches as firewood

  • Offer branches/wood on Freecycle (opens in a new window) or freegle (opens in a new window) networks

  • Be creative. Why not purchase some mushroom spawn, inoculate your branch/wood and grow your very own mushrooms?
