What tree do you want for Christmas – real or artificial? Still haven’t decided? Keep on reading to learn the pros and cons of both types of trees and, finally, make an ultimate decision!

Choosing Christmas Tree

What if you choose an artificial tree? You’ll have the following advantages:
• You won’t need to cut down a new tree each year

• You’ll save money as you won’t have to pay for a new one annually

• It won’t need watering and won’t leave pine needles on your floor

Nevertheless, artificial trees also have drawbacks, such as:

• They have a negative environmental impact since they are manufactured with non-degradable plastic and may contain lead

• They are non-recyclable

• Most artificial trees sold in the US are manufactured in China, where they add to the country’s general environmental footprint

Now it’s time to learn the pros of having a real tree. They are:

• Possibility of recycling them. During the process of “treecycling,” the trees are recycled into mulch and later used in gardening and landscaping, creating hiking trails and walkways, preventing beachfront erosion, and stabilizing the shoreline

• Ability to employ people on the farms where the trees are growing

• Development of sustainable farming techniques

Of course, a real tree also has some cons:

• A tree can be sprayed with pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers

• The difficulty of transporting the tree and environmental impact associated with it
