Be Eco-friendly and Buy a Real Christmas Tree

There are nearly 500,000 acres of Christmas trees in the United States, with each acre providing the daily oxygen requirements of 18 people. When one tree is cut down, three seedlings are planted the following year to replace it. Natural Christmas trees reduce carbon and they are biodegradable.

Margaret Handley, of Handley’s Holiday Hillside in Solon, Iowa says,”There is no need to add anything to the water, like sugar or aspirin or other additives — just plenty of water.” And she added, “Watering your tree with hot water for the first few days will keep your tree fresh, longer.”
