Real Christmas Trees: The Best Choice. Each holiday season, shoppers find themselves confronted with a choice: celebrate with a fresh, real tree, or one that is artificial plastic or aluminum. What most people don't realize is that the best choice has always been the traditional and natural choice - a Real Christmas Tree.

Real Christmas Trees Benefit the Environment. While they're growing, Real Christmas Trees support life by absorbing carbon dioxide and other gases and emitting fresh oxygen. The farms that grow Christmas Trees stabilize soil, protect water supplies and provide refuge for wildlife while creating scenic green belts. Often, Christmas Trees are grown on soil that doesn't support other crops.

Real Christmas Trees Are Renewable. Real Christmas Trees are grown on farms just like any other crop. To ensure a constant supply, Christmas Tree growers plant one to three new seedlings for every tree they harvest. On the other hand, artificial trees are a petroleum-based product manufactured primarily in Chinese factories. The average family uses an artificial tree for only six to nine years before throwing it away, where it will remain in a landfill for centuries after disposal.recycle

Real Christmas Trees Are Recyclable. Real Christmas Trees are biodegradable, which means they can be easily reused or recycled for mulch and other purposes.

Real Christmas Trees Help Preserve Green Spaces. Christmas Trees are often grown on soil that does not support other crops. Learn more about the National Christmas Tree Association's support of Project Evergreen.
