Real Tree is the Green Tree Choice

Because of chemcials and the VOCs a fake tree will produce, you are always better to get a real tree, but consider these options:

1. Buy a tree with the root system in tack, place it in a pot and dig the hole where you want it to go post holiday. Enjoy your tree then plant it. Be sure to use peat moss and organic soil to take root and use mulched leaves to keep it warm.

2. Buy your tree from a local fundraiser group such as the Lions or Boy Scouts. At least your doing some secondary good.

3. Go to a local farm that is specifically a Christmas Tree farm. This is sustainable forestry and for every tree they cut they plant more and it is part of the lifecyle Cristmas tree. You can even find ones that are grown organically.

4. Recyle your tree at the end of your season. It is a must.
