In this age of environmental awareness, itís appropriate to know a favorite family holiday tradition of choosing a real Christmas tree over an artificial tree is still the environmentally sound choice.

A benefit to the atmosphere, real Christmas trees absorb carbon dioxide and other gases; emitting fresh oxygen. This helps prevent the earth warming greenhouse effect.

Real Christmas trees are an all-American, recyclable resource. Artificial trees, most of which are manufactured in Korea, Taiwan, or Hong Kong, consist of plastics and metals that arenít biodegradable. When disposed of, the artificial trees will never deteriorate. Their effects on our environment are evident and will remain for countless generations.

Christmas tree farms stabilize soil, protect water supplies and provide refuge for wildlife, while creating scenic green belts. Often Christmas trees are grown on soils that could not support other crops.

By enjoying a REAL tree this Christmas, you will be making the right environmental choice!
