Some folks worry that they are harming forests or making a poor choice for the environment by choosing a real Christmas tree. Actually, Christmas trees do not come from a natural forest! Almost everywhere in North America, definitely here in Ontario, Christmas trees are grown as a crop on tree farms. Farmers ensure that they only harvest about 1 out of every 10 trees. This protects their farm and ensures harvests in the years to come. Christmas trees are an exceedingly environmentally-friendly crop because a tree is only harvested after ten years of growth. To ensure future harvests, ninety percent of the farm must remain in trees all the time. The growing crop of Christmas trees produce oxygen and attracts and protects wildlife. At the end of the holiday season, most municipalities have a specific pick up and the trees are collected and chipped into mulch.
