Why not try recycling your tree! Use your Christmas tree as mulch. Remove the branches with a handsaw, and layer them over perennial beds in a crisscrossing fashion. This will let air circulate while preventing the frozen ground from thawing and refreezing repeatedly, thus protecting young plants and their roots.

This is from the City's web site.
DPW will conduct a holiday tree collection in 2007 during the first two weeks of January. Holiday trees must be placed near your Courville container and will be picked up on the same day as your scheduled weekly trash collection. Residents who set out holiday trees more than 24 hours before their scheduled pick-up will be subject to a fine.

Why are people still buying natural trees for Christmas and then wondering what to do with them? Nothing personal here. But there needs to be an education on composting, as Thedeadofnight suggested, if folks are going to go natural for Christmas.
Chop up the tree and toss it into a compost pile in your backyard with other organic debris. Check out composting on the Internet. The Sierra Club might help.
