Save Money by Using Tarps for Christmas Tree Removal

Posted on

The best gift you could put under the Christmas tree this year doesn't need to be wrapped or monogrammed. Put a heavy-duty tarp underneath your tree to save yourself money, time and hassle when it's time for Christmas tree removal. PTM's heavy-duty tarps are laminated and treated to be waterproof and rot-proof - perfect for underneath O Tannenbaum. It has a dense, 12x14 weave count and 12-millimeter thickness, with heavy-duty rust resistant aluminum grommets spaced every 18 inches along all four of its sides. With rope-reinforced corners and edges, it is easy to wrap up even the sharpest branches and heaps of dry needles with no holes, breaks or mess. Slide a tarp under your tree stand after St. Nick has come and gone, or place a heavy-duty tarp underneath it from the start to make your Christmas tree cleanup a breeze. You can cover the tarp with a tree skirt, or really get into the Christmas spirit and choose a red, green or silver tarp. Say goodbye to useless Christmas tree removal bags - and to scratched walls and floors - and dispose of your Christmas tree with few supplies and no headaches. Simply unfold the heavy-duty tarp, cut off the branches with pruning shears and dispose of the trunk, then carry out the mess in one fell swoop. No needles in your socks or underfoot for the next three months. "Merry Christmas" to you.
