Spruce, Pine and Fir to Hang your Canes and Bobbles 2017 Holiday Fun Guide


What will you decorate your home with this holiday season – a real Christmas tree or an artificial one? That is a question many people ask themselves at this most wonderful time of year. Although there is a large selection of beautiful artificial trees out there, the spicy, fresh scent of balsam fir filling the house is hard to beat.

Yes, vacuuming up fallen pine needles is annoying, but what are the benefits of having a real Christmas tree? According to the National Christmas Tree Association, real trees are the best choice, the natural choice – and a benefit to the environment. While they’re growing, trees support life by absorbing carbon dioxide and other gases and emitting fresh oxygen. The farms that grow varieties of evergreens stabilize soil, protect water supplies and provide refuge for wildlife while creating scenic green belts. Real Christmas trees are biodegradable, which means they can be easily reused or recycled for mulch and other purposes, and they help preserve green spaces. Real Christmas trees are often grown in soil that does not support other crops. And, they are beautiful!

Finding the perfect tree and cutting it down is a fun activity that many families enjoy year after year. You can fill your Christmas with joy and forge a lasting memory by visiting a local Christmas tree farm. Be sure to dress for the weather when you set out in search of that perfect pine, spruce or fir, and then warm up with a steaming mug of cocoa when you’re done!
