Yes. 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. 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.

Is it good for the environment to buy a real Christmas tree?
