Oh, Christmas Tree...

Your Christmas tree can have a second life.  
When it’s time to take down your tree, cut the branches from your tree (making it easier to remove from the house) and add them (or additional mulch) over the top of perennial beds and any plantings put in during the fall.  This will protect the plants during freeze and thaw cycles.  You don’t need to wait for a January thaw to put down branches:  place them on the snow atop those perennial beds.
