Where do you think these guys are off to? Seems sad to me to cut down a tree for a few weeks of decorations. Do you think tree farms are sustainable?

Wordless Wednesday, a simple post which features a photo to convey a message that speaks for itself without using words; well not a lot of words.

      I know! I wonder if they will be made into wood chips are something? Fire wood?

    It’s my understanding that most towns collect christmas trees to be chopped into wood chips for mulch (for public parks). But I agree it seems wasteful…maybe because I didn’t gtow up celebrating christmas and have no sentimental attachment to having a tree. Plus there are so many crafty, reusable options you can make instead!

    And tree farms are actually quite sustainable, and usually small family-owned businesses. I reblogged an Organic Gardening article about tree farms at my old blog:

    Great blog – I’m glad I found ya!

      Thanks for the info! I would hope most get made into wood chips, but I still think it is wasteful! I will definitely checkout that article! :)

    I was not raised eco-conscious at ALL. That is why I love your blog and others like it. All my education is happening right now as I read these posts. So to answer your question, I have no clue. Is it better to use real trees or fake ones? I need you to answer this for me LOL

      Aww, so sweet Annie of you to say! I love hearing that I helping people a little bit at a time. And I was no raised eco-conscious at all. I only started to recycle when I moved in with my dad at the age of 17. As the years went on, I just go more and more green. The last 3 years have been the big turning point in my life- getting pregnant changed a lot of things for me.

      I personally think using a real one is healthier and better for you and the environment Most fake trees are plastic and contain lead, and crap. Lead is bad! You don’t want to touch or inhale that crap. WIth that being said, I use a potted tree, called Bruce the Spruce. True story! He is sitting on my porch now until the spring. He will be planted and we will attempt to dig him up again before the holidays this year or just buy another rooted tree and keep planting them every year!

    The ones around here are mostly collected by the city (for free, with the yard waste) to use for composting. I decided it was less sad to support a local tree-growing farm (think of the air-greening effects!) than to purchase a plastic tree made in a factory that will never decompose. I’m happy to hear arguments to the contrary, but that’s what made up my mind to where it is now.
