IS YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE ECO-FRIENDLY?
Five to ten years ago, some green conscious consumers felt confident that an artificial Christmas tree was a better alternative to cutting down a live tree. Today, the prevailing wisdom suggests that artificial trees produced with harmful PVC plastics and lead have a bigger carbon footprint than a cut tree. At the same time, purchasing a sustainably-farmed Christmas tree involves decisions similar to buying an apple (organic versus pesticides, locally grown versus Oregon grown, and biodiverse versus monoculture). For others, native versus non-native species are part of the equation to consider the impact on sustainable habitats. As you decide what's right for you, consider the pros and cons of these five options.

Trees have stories to tell. Why were they planted in a particular place? When did they arrive? What kind of changes have they experienced?
