The Importance Of REAL Minnesota Christmas Trees
DID YOU BUY A 'REAL' MINNESOTA CHRISTMAS TREE THIS YEAR?
Do you buy a tree every year as part of your family tradition? Or do you have traditions that are based around a FAKE tree? After reading this article you may reconsider, because there are a lot of good reasons to purchase a REAL tree:
- Real trees are grown on farms here in Minnesota, and support tree farmers. They are also a renewable crop. For every tree that is purchased, 2-3 seedlings are planted.
- By buying a local tree, it keeps your dollars working here in the state of Minnesota.
- It takes between 8 to 12 years for a real Christmas tree to grow to a height it can be cut and purchased. During this time, tree farmers are busy tending to the trees, pruning, watering, shaping and making sure the young trees have the proper nutrients.
- Approximately 500,000 Christmas trees are purchased each year.
