Growing Trees

Well, we're about halfway through the year and there will be many places celebrating Christmas in July specials.  So, get out to your local store and find those bargains!

Summer is in full gear now, so everything is in bloom and the trees are full.  This got me to thinking about Christmas trees.  There are many tree farms throughout the country, each wanting your business, so you can find that perfect tree.  Just do a quick check online to find one in your area.  When I was young we used to go out the country to cut our own tree, but those times have changed.  You don't want to go accidentally trespassing on someone's property and cut down their precious trees.  So please, this year use a local tree merchant. 

I prefer the local tree sellers.  The ones who are run by the scouts or give a portion of their sales to charity.  Of course you could also try to grow your own.  You would have to wait a few years to reap the benefits though.  In the meantime you could decorate it outside and bring a little Christmas cheer to your lawn.

Of course, there are many people who would disagree about a live tree.  But trees that come from farms give off tonnes of oxygen into the atmosphere and clean the air when they're growing.  Plus, each tree cut down gets replaced with a new seedling.  There is no clear cutting.  Be happy to know that your Christmas tree has already given its own gift of clean air.

Whatever you decide, adding the perfect tree to your home for your Christmas celebration will definately make your holiday merry and bright.
