Real Christmas trees are a recyclable resource. Artificial trees consist of plastics and metals that aren’t biodegradable. When disposed of, the artificial trees simply fill landfills. Their effects on our environment are evident and will remain for countless generations. Real Christmas trees help our enviroment by providing refuge for wildlife and much more. One acre of Christmas trees provides the daily oxygen requirements of 18 people!
Christmas Tree Care Tips
- Choose a healthy tree by gently grasping a branch while pulling it towards you. Very few, if any, green needles should remain in your hand.
- Always be sure to make a “fresh cut” on your tree before placing it in your stand.
- Check the water level daily to ensure the tree never “drinks” the bowl dry.
- Never place your tree near heating vents, fireplaces or other sources of heat.
