Creative Alternative to Cutting Down the Evergreen for Christmas


The creative staff at Gleeson Library in San Francisco have put their imaginations to good "green" work.  Rather than cut down a tree, they stacked books covered in varying shades of green, forming a tree that is a focal point in the library.  Clean up is super easy - just re-shelve the books!  Clever.

Another alternative is to cut a tree from your own woodlot about waist high and then watch it grow back into another tree. The farmer does this every year and it always works though it takes awhile. I do like the book tree though!
