Once the holidays are here and gone, go for a walk through any neighborhood and you’ll see Christmas tree after Christmas tree, with strands of tinsel blowing in the wind, dumped by the road awaiting garbage collection. This strikes me as somewhat befuddling when we can take a custom that symbolized life and the promise of rebirth in the spring and turn it into another aspect of our “throw-away society”
It’s that time of the year. Christmas trees are everywhere in a variety of species, sizes and colors. Some live, some cut. The popularity of a live Christmas Tree has been on the rise for several years, but all to often many of these trees do not survive long after the “big day” is past so we thought we’d pass along these tips on choosing, planting and caring for your live Christmas tree. The most important aspect to consider when making your purchase is to make sure you pick a variety that will grow well in our area.
