Spring Garden Tips
Not Just a Decoration
Your Christmas tree is not just a fleeting holiday decoration.    It also helped improve the environment while growing on the Christmas tree farm.  It, like other trees, absorbs carbon dioxide and emits oxygen.  In fact, one acre of Christmas trees produces the daily oxygen requirements for 18 people.  That means the one million acres of Christmas trees in the United States are producing enough oxygen for 18 million people. 

And there is even better news.  Two to three new trees are planted for each one harvested.  And the young trees growing on Christmas tree farms produce more oxygen during this rapid growth period than their older counterparts.
