As the Christmas season approaches, families go in search of a tree to celebrate the festivities. According to the National Christmas Tree Association, 25 to 30 million trees are sold annually, and nearly 350 million Christmas trees have now been grown on this farm.
Families have the option of cutting down their own tree over simply going to the store and getting an artificial one. In many cases, however, if we bear in mind the environment, the decision may not be so obvious.
It causes more damage to the environment to get an artificial tree than it does to cut down a real one, due to many fake christmas trees giving off chemicals during manufacturing that are not totally different from carbon emissions.
