    Which one is better, a real or a fake Christmas tree, and why?
  • June S. 1 year ago
    Our area has several drop off places for Christmas trees. Since we are on the coast, most of them get used to help rebuild dunes.

    We would take quite a few of the Christmas trees and take them to the lake and sink them. They provide a home for the fish; then you know where to go fishing in the future for sure catches.

    Dating to way, way back in 1960, my dad ALWAYS bought our Christmas trees from the local nursery, and planted them after the holidays... he was the ORIGINAL "recycler"... today, since I don't have my dad's green thumb, I have an artificial tree that I've been using since the 1980's.

      To this day, I can't understand why ANYONE would buy a dead tree for Christmas!!!!!! If you don't have a yard to plant it in, just buy a very lifelike fake tree that you can use year after year!

      ... and, if you're totally into the "pine scent" of the season, you can either cut a few boughs off a pine tree for decorations (leaving the tree unharmed) or go to your local store and buy some pine-scented air freshener...

    I think the good thing about using the yard waste and christmas trees for mulch is that it replaces the need for turning virgin trees into mulch. But I have seen friends cut the tree trunks into chunks about 18-24 inches high and use them for stools or tables around a fire pit outside or just anywhere in the back yard, it's great for kids to sit and play on.
