If you haven't thrown your live Christmas tree away yet, you might want to hold on to it. That's because they can be replanted at a nursery, or even your own back yard.

Tree experts say the process is easy, and it can save you some money during the holiday season.

"You just take that tree out in to your backyard, gather your kids and dig a hole.," said Corbin Snow, with Snow's Garden Center. "Make sure the hole is about twice the size of the rootball in the diameter, and just place the tree down the hole, and it will grow just fine."

If you do decide to replant your Christmas tree, experts say you should remember to water it thoroughly once a week.
