In this age of environmental awareness it's good to know a
favorite family holiday tradition of choosing a real Christmas
tree over an artificial tree is still the environmentally sound
A benefit to the atmosphere, real Christmas trees absorb carbon
dioxide and other gases, emitting fresh oxygen. This helps
prevent the earth-warming "greenhouse effect". One acre of
Christmas trees produces the daily oxygen requirement for 18
people. With approximately one million acres producing Christmas
trees in the United States, that translates into oxygen for 18
million people every day. Unlike fake trees, real trees are a
renewable resource. And for every real Christmas tree harvested,
three seedlings are planted in its place.
Christmas tree farms stabilize soil, protect water supplies and
provide refuge for wildlife while creating scenic green belts.
Often, Christmas trees are grown on soils that could not support
other crops. Real Christmas trees are an all-American,
Artificial trees, most of which are manufactured in Korea,
Taiwan or Hong Kong, consist of PVC plastics and metals that
aren't biodegradable and can emit toxic fumes into the
atmosphere during the manufacturing process. When disposed of,
the artificial trees will never deteriorate. Their effects on
our environment are evident and will remain for countless
generations. Artificial Christmas trees may also contain lead
and may shed lead-laced dust, which may cover branches or shower
gifts and the floor below the tree.
If you care about your health and the environment, choose a real
tree for your family this Christmas.

United States. Most artificial trees are manufactured in Korea,
Taiwan, or Hong Kong.

seedlings are planted in its place.
- CLEAN: There are about 1 million acres in production for
growing Christmas trees. Each acre provides the daily oxygen
requirements of 18 people.

curbside recyclers collect used trees each year and chip them
into mulch, make them into compost or use them for biomass fuel
to generate electricity.

growers in the U.S., and over 100,000 people employed full or
