Christmas Trees To Go

Cities around the world always allocate a portion of their budgets for decorations for holidays. Slow or bad economic conditions can have public administrators trying to come up with ways to save, especially, if they have to buy new Christmas decorations for the city.

 

Here is a Christmas decoration idea that is not only “budget conscious” and “cost effective”, but “environmentally friendly” and adds a new idea to the issue of “recycle.”

 

In the United States, vehicle owners sometimes wonder, “What can I do with the old tires off the car or pickup ?” Answer: Build a Christmas Tree.

 

Using metal poles, angle iron and old automobile tires, these unique “On The Roadside Christmas Trees” line the shoulders of the road into the city of Tanauan in the Republic of the Philippines. These trees are painted white, but if you get out your silver, gold or green spray cans, then, you can come up with your own paint scheme.

 

This photograph was taken, during the Christmas 2011 season. While these holiday trees seem securely embedded in the roadside shoulder, they are obviously portable because come January they are Christmas Trees To Go . . . into storage until next year. Go ahead and fire up your Lincoln arc welder and build yourself a Christmas Tree. Photo by Samuel E. Warren Jr.
