Hi, I posted this on the in my house board but thought you lot might know best.

We are going to get rid of the conifers which were in our garden when we moved in, basically because there is no room for them, I think the previous owners thought they were minitures or something.

We have 6 of them now and getting quite big, I have cut them back loads and the tallest is now about 6ft smallest about 4ft.

Thing is they are really pretty and dont just want to chuck them, do you know of anyway where to find people that may want them or who we could donate them to.

Thank you

    Maybe you could call a couple of local schools or nursing homes and see if they might want them for their garden?

    Though no doubt theres some ridiculous legislation that would prevent them from accepting them! lol

    Yeah I was thinking of freecycle, just wondering if there were any other options and wasnt sure if you could give plants away on there

    Alright it seems that we may have to just cut them down because of the size of them and the roots it would be far too difficult.

    So does anyone know of where we can then give the tree maybe to recycle the wood or something?
