GO GREEN THIS CHRISTMAS!
Christmas trees are intentionally grown for your enjoyment and are a renewable resource. Tree farms help control soil erosion and provide year-round homes for wildlife. Real Christmas trees absorb carbon dioxide and other gases, emitting fresh oxygen into the atmosphere.
A tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year, and can sequester one ton of carbon dioxide by the time it reaches 40 years of age.
Artificial trees contain non-biodegradable plastics and possible metal toxins such as lead. They are non-recyclable and non-biodegradable, meaning they will sit in a landfill for centuries after disposal.
CHRISTMAS TREE VARIETIES
We offer up to 15 varieties of Christmas trees to choose from.
Some of the varieties available include: Douglas Fir, Grand Fir, Korean Fir, Turkish Fir, Alpine Fir, Concolor Fir, Western and Eastern White Pine, Noble Fir, Nordmann Fir, Norwegian Spruce, Colorado Blue and Green Spruce, Interior Douglas Fir and Island Naturals. Selection and varieties available vary from season to season and day to day. We also produce a wide selection of mixed green wreaths with holly, cones and bows, mantle wreaths, Christmas moss baskets, door swags, cedar garland, kissing balls, plus a beautiful selection of mixed greens and floral centrepieces.
CHRISTMAS TREE CARE
Your tree can last anywhere from 3-6 weeks.
- If your tree has been out of water for longer than 15 to 20 minutes since cut, we recommend you give your tree a 1/2 inch fresh cut before putting it into water. Tree sap can seal over the base in as little as 15 minutes preventing your tree from absorbing the water it needs.
- Checking the water level and filling the stand with new water on a daily basis may be necessary in the first week of having the tree inside. After the first week you may notice the tree absorbs less water. Our motto is “A litre of water a day keeps the vacuum away”.
- Depending on the type of tree, the temperature in your home and tree care given, your tree can last anywhere from 3-6 weeks. Fraser Fir and Noble Fir last the longest and have excellent needle retention. Some of our customers have reported keeping their trees decorated well into the New Year.
- Real Christmas trees are a renewable resource and can be recycled into wood chips and garden mulch. Contact the Lion’s Club for information regarding tree chipping by donation.
By choosing a real tree, you’re promoting environmental awareness for future generations.
For the past eight to ten years,
your Christmas tree has been hard at work helping to clean our environment. It has removed carbon dioxide from the air and reduced pollution by absorbing noxious gases and converting them to clean, breathable oxygen. Your tree helped increase soil stability and has filtered particles of sand, dust, ash, pollen and smoke. In addition, it has provided a natural habitat for a variety of wildlife.
Unlike a typical farm crop, Christmas trees are a renewable, recyclable product that continually benefits our environment. Each spring, Christmas tree growers plant on average three trees for every tree harvested during the Christmas season. These trees are then nurtured and shaped for seven to fifteen years to enhance the natural growing process. Finally, your real tree is cut down so that it may be enjoyed by your family and friends as part of a historic Christmas tradition.
Once Christmas is over, your real tree can be converted to mulch which can be used in a variety of ways to benefit our environment, unlike a discarded artificial tree that will take hundreds of years to decompose in a landfill.
