BOSTON (CBS) – The City of Boston is hoping to give Christmas trees a second life after the holiday.

Any trees put out to the curb from January 3-14 will be shredded up and turned into compost.

That compost will be used in a number of Boston parks.

Any tree put out after January 14 will be thrown into the trash instead.
