  Picking out a Christmas tree is one of the best ways to get into the holiday spirit.  However, many people have become concerned with the environmental impact of their choices.

When artificial Christmas trees first came into popularity, it was thought they were the better option for the environment.  (People would not be cutting down a real tree each year if they have an artificial one.)  As time went on, however, it became apparent that many families only keep artificial trees for a few years.  Sometimes, a pre-lit tree's lights stop working.  other times it's because the tree is too big or difficult to store.  In the long run, an artificial tree is only a better choice if it's kept for 10 years or more.

Normally, it is discouraged to cut down trees.  Their stored carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere, contributing to global warming.  Also, many trees are not replaced with new saplings.  In the case of Christmaqs tree farms, many trees are cut, but many more are planted each year to replace them.


There are plenty of choices when it comes to finding a beautiful Christmas tree that is environmentally friendly.  you can choose a real tree, artificial tree, or even one made out of driftwood or sculpted metal.  no matter what, you can give your home an extra dose of holiday spirit while still helping the planet.
