Why Buy a Real Christmas Tree?

  • Real Christmas trees are plantation grown on Ontario family farms, making an important economic contribution to many rural communities surrounding Toronto.
  • Real Christmas trees absorb carbon dioxide and other harmful “greenhouse” gases and release fresh fragrant oxygen into the air. 
  • Ontario grown Christmas Trees collectively provide oxygen for 540,000 people daily. 
  • Real Christmas trees are a renewable, recyclable resource.
  • After the holidays, Real trees are chipped into biodegradable mulch, which replenishes soil in landscapes, parks, and schools. 
  • For every Real Christmas tree harvested, another one is planted in its place to ensure a steady supply year after year. 
  • Fake Christmas trees are made overseas from nonrenewable plastics. Once these resources are used up, they are gone forever.
