[GreenYes] recycling of Christmas trees
from http://www.greenbaypressgazette.com/news/archive/local_7479329.shtml

Christmas trees are grown in all 50 states by about 15,000 tree farms.

The million acres of land in Christmas tree production yield about 30 million trees bought annually.

The average growing time for a tree to reach 6 feet is seven years, however, the growing time can be as long as 15 years.

Couldn't these trees be milled to be used as wooden poles instead of just being dumped next to water to "save the wetlands"??
