No. They are grown for exactly that purpose. A great cash crop for a farmer.
Now, the tree that is brought into Rockefeller center--that's a horse of an entirely different color
considering that christmas trees are grown on farms now i dont see how it can be, waste of land maybe
Here they're collected, chipped, and used for mulch in the parks.
Mine's metal and plastic...
THANK YOU! Finally slab other person who doesn't invest in a tree that's gonna eventually die!
Not unlike flowers at a florist, they are dead by the time you finish cutting them from their roots... well that's when you stop hearing their screaming!
No, not really. They're grown specifically to spend a fortnight sitting in someone's house, after which they're either used for any of the things dead trees are usually used for, or they rot like dead trees do in the wild.
My brother had a X-Mas tree that was grown in a huge planter. Every year, he would wheel it inside, decorate it, then after New Years, would simply (not really so simple, but with help) move it back outside.
not if they're fake
If they store the tree for next year then no. If they throw it away yes.
Well, what else are they going to do with them after they cut them down?
Yes much better to use them as toilet paper
We have a fake one, but they are a renewable resource.
I still don't understand why people buy trees that are just gonna die. Not that I'm a tree hugger I'm just a money saver. Buy a ****** fake one. Take that ***** down when Christmas is over. Look in your closet a year later and...GASP it's not dead! Which means I don't have to spend money again! SHOCKING!...(｡-_-｡)
Really? The got ****** air fresher if I want that ****...which I don't I'm more of a honeysuckle or buttercream vanilla scented person :)
So you'd rather spray toxic chemical in the air from an aerosol and think you are saving the environment by not cutting a farmed tree?
Didn't I say I wasn't a ****** tree hugger?! I said I don't buy one for "MONEY SAVING" purposes. And how am I destroying the environment when I'm spraying the "toxic chemicals" INSIDE my house?
