1. Please don't forget about the elephants

Elephants like to eat Christmas trees as well. Most zoo's will take them after the Christmas season.

2. I didn't know goats and elephants eat xmas trees.

I know that horses like tree bark, maybe I should not be surprised.

4. We can eat pine trees too

I wouldn't think it would be delicious or anything.

Creek Stewart on The Weather Channel taught me that we could survive off pine trees in a dire situation.

I only hope that nobody ever has to do this to survive.

6. With Trump in office, maybe we should start practicing eating pine trees.

As a southerner: deep fried pine, yum, yum! Hold the salad.
