For many they're a traditional and popular Christmas decoration.
But what happens to Christmas trees after the holidays?
You can throw them in the trash, bring them to a landfill, or, you can supply a delicious and healthy treat to some goats!
Owner of Top of the Hill Ranch, Teresa Fletcher said, "We have asked our neighbors and community if we could get some Christmas trees since the goats can't get out into the pasture for browsing it helps for them to have different types of texture for them to eat on."
On Top of the Hill Ranch in Collbran, Fletcher is taking any old Christmas trees as meals for her goats.
"It's something new that we're doing this year, we had heard other people doing it. So we thought we'd try it this year and of course they love it as you can see. They will actually eat it down pass the bark," said Teresa.
Teresa added, "That way it doesn't fill up the landfills, so any way that we can preserve and keep from cluttering up the landfills, more power to us.
Pine, balsam fir, hemlock, spruce and other evergreens contain vitamin c and nutrients that help animals get through the winter.
Needles on the trees also act as de-wormers.
It only takes Teresa’s goats about two hours to completely eat an entire Christmas tree- bark and all.
"We have cedar trees along our fence line and they will pretty much destroy a tree on this side of the fence," adds Teresa.
