Today’s Solutions: October 02, 2022

We once shared how a tiny owl was rescued from the branches of the Rockefeller Christmas Tree. Now we have more good news as it turns out the fate of the tree itself is also quite heartwarming. 

Once the holiday season is done, the tree will be taken down in early January. Then, it will take on new life-supporting communities in need as the tree will be turned into lumber that will be donated to Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit which uses the wood to build homes for people in need. 

This post-Christmas tradition has been around since 2007. Habitat for Humanity even tries to return the tree to its home state so it contributes to housing people from the region it was sourced from. 

This year’s 2020 tree, a Norway spruce, came from Oneonta, New York, so it will not have far to travel to make it back to its hometown.
