What to know about Christmas trees
A real Massachusetts Christmas tree 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 farms 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.
Did you know the average time to grow a seven foot Christmas tree is 7-10 years? Popular varieties of Massachusetts-grown trees include Balsam, Concolor, Fraser, Douglas and Noble Fir; along with Scotch and White Pine. More information specific trees can be found here.
