Choosing A Christmas Tree

November 29th, 2011 · No Comments · Garden Supplies, Gardening News

Choosing a Christmas tree can be quite an emotive matter. I found an interesting article the other day which set out to prove that buying a live tree was greener than an artificial alternative which can last for several years, but was distracted by other matters and now can no longer find it. However I have found another piece which makes similar claims pointing out that new trees are planted every year so that there is no net loss of tree cover. Tree growers also point out that their trees can be recycled after the holiday whereas the artificials end up in landfill.

And it’s not just vegetables and chickens that are organic or free range. According to Mother Earth News to be really environmentally friendly you should avoid trees that have been treated with pesticides and herbicides. Read more..

“An Eco-Chic Christmas Tree” is how Lauren Barth describes this eco-friendly tree made from recycled cardboard. All very eco-friendly I’m sure, but despite it being easy to assemble and maintenance free I don’t think it would be my choice. Read more..

If you agree with me that a living tree is the best choice then you have to decide what type of pine or fir to choose for your living room this year. I found this video which was made a few years ago, but the advice appears to be evergreen:
