image for Need to get rid of a Christmas Tree? There's an app for that
And this one was thrown over in 1972, I call it Nigel.

Pretty soon all of the Christmas trees bought just before the festive period will require collecting.

"But what to do with the old tree?" asks Mac Buck of App World!. "Do you recycle? Do you take it to the tip? Or do you leave it in a neighbour's garden and claim you know nothing about it?"

The latest app from the Apple Store helps solve the problem.

"Most people will want to recycle their tree," said Buck. "This new app, iTree, will allow you to join a tree recycling scheme and even choose what your tree is recycled into. I've joined a scheme to have my trees recycled into decorative logs."

Other schemes are available, with the uptake for toilet rolls surprisingly high.

"I think that people like the idea of a pine fresh bottom," said Buck. "I liked the thought of laminate flooring or fence posts, but I'm sticking with decorative logs."

For those that do not want to recycle their tree, the app can give a location for a Christmas Tree bonfire, or even when you're neighbour will be out for that heave ho over the fence.

"I have downloaded this app," said Buck. "And I will be using it, as I wish to know when my neighbour believes I will be out. I want to be in to see when he throws it over my fence. I'm getting completely fed up with it. I have enough decorative logs."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
