Environmentally Friendly

If you are concerned about the environment, then make the environmentally friendly choice in Christmas Trees – a fresh, farm grown Real Christmas Tree.

Real Christmas Trees are 100 percent biodegradable and can be recycled for a wide variety of uses after the holidays. Artificial trees are manufactured overseas from petroleums and plastics and provide no benefits to the environment or local labor.

Real Tree Care

Make a fresh cut a minimum of one quarter inch off the base of the trunk before placing a tree in the stand. This opens the tree system so it can take up water. Immediately place your tree in the stand and fill it with water. If you allow the water level to drip below the fresh cut, a new seal will form over the stem. Remember, your tree may drink up to a gallon of water a day. Usa a stand with a capacity of a gallon or more. Check the stand daily and supply fresh water as needed.
