Take Christmas into the garden this year

Take Christmas into the garden this year”

It was many years later when the Christmas tree would make its appearance in Europe as part of Christian celebrations. In fact, according to the EPA, the volume of American waste increases 25 percent between Thanksgiving and Christmas. A tree will drink at least 1 gallon of water the first 24 hours inside and a pint or more every day.

"It's really a big help because Christmas trees are expensive". Back then my younger sisters and I would take families out in the back twenty and cut down the tree they selected and drag it back to their vehicle. These trees also contain some awful chemicals - PVC (aka vinyl), lead and harmful plastics, which include cancer-causing pollutants when produced.

Not all of the trees are grown on Steve's farm. It's like the trees revenge for getting cut down.

What sort of Christmas tree do you have? A tree requires one quart of water per one inch of tree. When I had to pull a 10-foot step ladder from the garage, it became very clear that this was a monster tree.

As I kept dragging pieces of the tree out of our attic, it became clear this was no small tree. When we re-wild our yards and our urban areas it's so good. Christmas tree farms also provide thousands of jobs as well as habitats for wildlife.

Don't let your eco-efforts end with the tree. Solar lights are the greenest option for outdoor applications. Read manufacturer's instructions for the number of LED strands to connect. We line them up on windowsills, on top of book shelves, in bowls in the hall - they're the best scent diffuser ever.
