No. They are grown for exactly that purpose. A great cash crop for a farmer.

I just hate seeing them lying in the garbage all brown and brittle, and the cost to transport and cut down etc cant be very good for the enviroment, all for a a few weeks of sillines.

well thats good, a reusable tree is much more eco friendly

Best Answer

THANK YOU! Finally slab other person who doesn't invest in a tree that's gonna eventually die!

Best Answer

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!

Best Answer

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.

Best Answer

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!...(。-_-。)

Best Answer

Really? The got ****** air fresher if I want that ****...which I don't I'm more of a honeysuckle or buttercream vanilla scented person :)

Best Answer

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?

Best Answer

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?
