Green Living: Green Christmas Tree

I am so excited about our Christmas tree this year!   We usually get a live tree.  From an environmental point of view, live trees are greener than a fake tree.  But I always feel bad seeing all the trees on the curb.   This year, we went for a living Christmas tree.  It’s potted in a pot and delivered and picked up and then reused next year.  I’m so excited!  I think this is the greenest tree possible.

Here is our tree.

You can see the roots and new growth on the tree.

Cool, huh?    Its all decorated now and it smells so good.  It hardly dropped any needles at all on the way in and I don’t expect it to drop many on the way out.  Since they deliver and pick up, no breaking our backs lugging it into the house and no worrying about it falling off the roof of our car.   I’ll do a post-Christmas update to let you know how it worked out for us.

    What a cool idea! We’ve talked about getting a live tree but never done it, but this sounds so easy, and relatively less messy!

      It was super easy. Just had to wait for the delivery person, but they were within the time frame they told us. And way less needles on the ground for sure.
