Fresh Christmas trees are like sponges: Their moisture alone weighs more than the tree itself does when dry.
After Christmas, you can recycle your tree as mulch for your gardens and trails, cover habitat for fish, a barrier to reduce soil erosion, or a habitat for birds and other wildlife.
Farmed Christmas trees cover about 1 million acres in the United States, providing oxygen equal to the daily requirements of 18 million people.
For every farmed Christmas tree harvested, two or three seedlings are planted to take its place.
