There are real
benefits to purchasing a farm-raised fresh tree for your holiday
celebration. Children's Health Environmental Coalition,
"Artificial Christmas trees are also made of PVC and could contain lead as well. Trees may shed lead-laced dust, which may cover branches or shower gifts and the floor below the tree. If you cannot ensure that your tree is lead-free and you have children in your home, we suggest that you dispose of the artificial tree and purchase a new tree. The most environmentally friendly choices are potted trees that can be planted in the spring or live trees raised on sustainably managed farms, or organic Christmas trees."
Why go with an artificial tree made from non-renewable plastics and petrochemicals, maybe containing lead? A real tree is 100% renewable, recyclable, supports the local economy and reduces greenhouse gases in the environment. Best of all, our Fraser Firs have excellent needle retention, fragrance and color. Chengerian's trees are grown without chemical fertilizers or insecticides. Find your perfect tree this year at Chengerian's.
