There arent too many wild jungle birds in the North American alpine climate. Or so I'm told.

Cmon. Yes, orange peels are biodegradable and is not a problem on the soil out of sight, but peels on the snow is not going to wither away soon and is unsightly.



Agreed.... anytime Ive thrown a bananna peel from a lift I make sure its off the trail. :angel:

I'm telling you, if you toss an orange peel in your front yard as you back outta the garage it'll be gone by the time you get back home. A bird will have picked it up and flown away. Try it, you'll see.

It's your neighbor, thinking, "What a slob, leaving orange peels on the front lawn."

And my birds around here must be blind or ignorant, because old orange peels I see on the local trails stay there, for multiple trips.

One of the reasons the birds are so into picking up orange peels is cuz all the worms have already been taken, and dumped into the water by fisherman. Yer trails need more fisherman on them, or lifties...

That's the wife picking up after you, not a bird.

I compost most organic scraps that come out of my kitchen and can tell you that orange peels CAN take years to fully biodegrade, I would recommend placing them in the trash.

Climbed half dome a few years back and watched a ranger tear a hiker a new one for discarding orange peels amongst the rocks...classic :twisted:

How long does an orange tree take to fully biodegrade?

It's not trash.

Who cares where the bird takes it? They got birds in the jungle now, too, where fruit trees were invented.

Come to think of it, there are a lot of seagulls @ the dump. Maybe Shifty is on(to) something after all :o

Where do you stand on empty PBR cans scattered about on the ground?

I understand crows are quite fond of the shiny PBR can in their nest, and that it is a sign of affluence amongst their neighbors.
Condors like them also, but more as a junk food snack..

As an indication, below are some commonly used products and the average length of time they take to biodegrade:

Cotton Rag 1 - 5 months
Paper 2 - 5 months
Orange Peel 6 months
Cigarette butts 1 - 12 months
Plastic coated paper milk cartons 5 years
Leather Shoes 25 - 40 years
Aluminium Cans 80 - 100 years
Plastic 6 pack can ring holder 450 years
Glass bottles 1 million years
Plastic bottles Forever


Sure, it's biodegradable, but it's still litter. Trail maps biodegrade quicker.
