Christmas Tree Farms
Take your friends or family out to a local Christmas tree farm for the best quality tree available. It is the environmental choice as these trees cleanse the air by breathing carbon dioxide and emitting fresh oxygen. They are renewable, recyclable, and locally grown. Christmas tree plantations beautify the landscape, prevent soil erosion, and preserve open space. They also provide homes for bird habitat, insects, and wildlife. Real Christmas Trees are grown on farms just like any other agricultural crop. Other envirnomental benefits can be seen here. Click here to find a MassGrown Christmas tree near you.
