Everything You Need To Know About Your Holiday Tree

Did you ever think that by using a cut Christmas tree in your house that you were actually helping the environment?

"Today in America there are enough Christmas trees planted that 18 million people a day are supplied with oxygen. Also, the farms that grow Christmas trees stabilize soil, protect water supplies, and provide a refuge for wildlife. Often, Christmas trees are grown on soil that will not support any other crops. And when one Christmas tree is cut down, two or more are replanted in its place... American Forests recommends keeping and planting a live tree this holiday season, because of the many benefits planting trees has for the environment."
