Ag Matters - Millions still find joy in 'real' Christmas trees

Email

Over the next few weeks I, like many other people, will be busy selecting and setting up a Christmas tree in my home. Each year 25-30 million live trees are sold in North America between Thanksgiving and Christmas. In response to this demand, Christmas tree growers plant two to three seedlings the following spring for every tree harvested. This makes live Christmas trees a very renewable resource, and they are recyclable too.
