3) Cut off the boughs and use them as insulation on your perennial flower beds.

4) Slice the trunk into 2″ long pieces and use the pieces to line a walkway, flowerbed, etc.

5) Cut the trunk into several different lengths and use as pot raisers to create different heights in a group display on your deck or steps.

6) Use as firewood in an outdoor fire pit.
