A Christmas tree after it’s season. To make use or to throw away?

we decorate Christmas trees from our own garden. Sometimes a fir tree, sometimes an alpine pine. A small tree or a big branch. After the season I cut off the branches, lay them on a cloth to dry and collect the dry needles. I make them into herbal salt for inhalations and baths, I use them for giving flavour to my apple vinegar which I use for rinsing the washing and for cleaning my kitchen and bathroom. I am thinking of mixing some into my herbal teas for cold.

The wood, of course, goes into fire. What else?
