Unfortunately, it was recently necessary for me to remove a small tree from my garden. I couldn't bring myself to just dump or 'chip' it, so I have kept many of the latger branches (see attached photo).


I am looking for project ideas for how I might be able to use these.


All practical and sensible ideas welcome.

Lots of ideas at http://livingvintageco.com/2013/08/50-ways-to-upcycle-tree-branches-and-logs/

I wish I had more tree branches just so I could try these!

Love some of these ideas - particularly the Christmas tree (#25) and the ladder/towel rack (#49) :)

'hugelkultur' seems a popular permaculture technique for building raised garden beds.
the technique is based on branch substructure.

i have seen this method used at our local community garden but have not tried it in my patch yet.
i need a thousand lifetimes to do all the things i would like in my garden.

warm regards

Great idea. I hadn't seen or heard of this. Just went off and did a bit of a search and found this:
