Did You Know…? Buying a Real Christmas Tree Is Better Than Buying A Fake One

Environmental Impact:

Christmas trees support wildlife, provide oxygen for mother earth, grow in soils that don’t support other crops, benefit soil stabilization and water erosion.  Artificial trees are petroleum-based and created in factories that emit carbon monoxide.


For every Christmas tree cut and sold, three new seedlings take its place. Artificial trees last an average of 3-5 years and are disposed in a landfill and take centuries to dispose while real Christmas trees are biodegradable.


Christmas trees can be recycled in a variety of way from mulch, fish habitats to elephant food.
