Getting the Best From Rogue Tree Branches at Home

Trees are everywhere, well except in deserts, but no one lives in the desert, so you’ll almost certainly have trees surrounding you wherever you live. You may have a tree or two growing on your lawn, and if so there’s nothing you can do to prevent the tree limbs or branches falling on your lawn. If you have many trees on or near your lawn, you will definitely find tree branches on your lawn on a daily basis. However instead of getting annoyed and trying (or paying) to cut down the tree, there are several things  you can do with the tree branches. With so many tiny twigs to huge branches falling on your lawn, there’s no need to throw them away when you can use it for your own benefit.

If you have a garden, then tree limbs and branches might be ideal for you away from the lawn. If you have a vegetable garden, you can use the tree limbs and branches to support the vegetables as they grow. For example, if you have garden peas, you’ll definitely find the importance of using a tree branch for support. You can also use trees to support tomato and cucumber vegetable plants. Besides structural support there is so much that you can do with broken branches in your garden, including constructing borders and other features.


If you have a fire pit in your garden or a fireplace in your house, then tree branches are a blessing. These are the ideal place for you to dispose of  branches by burning them. You can use small twigs to start the fires and then put in the larger wood. If you don’t have a fireplace or pit, you can be sure that someone does, so get advertising!


If you have a real abundance of branches on your lawn, you can hire or buy a wood chipper and chip the wood. The resulting chips can then be spread on perennial plants or elsewhere on your garden acting as an ideal mulching material. By doing this you will be able to keep your plants hydrated and cool in much the same way as other mulching material offers.

So there you have it, if you generally like your trees it’s far better to get some use out of the small inconvenience they generate than to have to resort to removing them altogether.
