Tree Care Tips

 
Care for your tree. Make a new cut if it’s not put in a stand with water within 12 hours.
Keep it watered throughout the season. That keeps it fresh through the holidays and helps the tree continue to provide that sought after aroma.

 
Christmas tree farming is a green industry. Real Christmas trees are natural, biodegradable and renewable. It keeps farm land in agricultural and the trees are an agricultural crop. While they’re growing, Christmas trees absorb carbon dioxide and other gases while emitting fresh oxygen. The National Christmas Tree Association states that 1 acre of Christmas trees produces the daily oxygen requirement for 18 people. After they are harvested and enjoyed at Christmas, trees can be recycled. Many local communities offer drop-off locations where Christmas trees can be chipped* to produce mulch, used as whole trees in slope stabilization projects, or even burning in biomass energy plants to produce green electricity. My neighbor feeds a few to his goats.
 
Our trees also provide habitat for a wide range of wildlife. Over the years, walks through the trees have resulted in sightings of song birds, turkey, deer, fox, rabbits, even moose and a bear.
