I read in a magazine article a few years ago that the real christmas tree was greener. The trees are being replanted each year and now when the trees are dead people can leave them on their curve and then are used for other purposes. The fake trees are bad because of all the materials that go into them and eventually they will end up in the land fill.

Of course, a real Christmas tree is green. After you have brought it, you have to keep it alive by using fertilized water. Then, after its roots regrow again, you can plant it in soil. Then you can keep it in your living room or plant it in your garden. Then you would have a forever Christmas tree. If failed, you can recycle that tree to paper or bio-char.
