Christmas may be making its presence felt this month of December, but some people are still unsure on which kind of tree to get.
Most homeowners are usually stuck between making the choice of selecting natural or artificial trees. It’s quite understandable, each type of tree has its pros and cons after all.
For example, artificial trees are popular because their easily kept when not in use. Come the holidays, all it takes is some effort in setting it up and voila! You have a Christmas tree. However, statistics show that people hang on to these trees for only 3 to 5 years, dumping them after. Being made of plastic, it stays in the landfill for a long period of time.
Natural Christmas trees are undeniably more environmentally friendly. For every tree that is cut down to serve as your Christmas tree, another one takes its place. When you want to dispose of them, you can turn to some business that offer chipping and reduction services at a minimal cost.
Jane Blenkarn who works in the Hockley Valley Tree Farm explained that it usually takes about 6 to 12 years for a Christmas tree to grow nicely. The process however, is far from simple – it takes a lot of hard work and patience according to her.
So there you, hopefully that makes your Holiday dilemma easier for you to solve. Stay practical and smart, and you won’t go wrong.
