Fresh-Cut Christmas Trees

The Value of a Real Cut Christmas Tree

The purchase of a cut Christmas tree can be a link in the ecological chain that helps keep our earth and the spirit of Christmas alive!

Have you ever considered what a farm of natural Christmas trees does for our environment? Temperatures are moderated, dust is collected, and a wildlife habitat is formed. The trees act as a watershed which prevent runoff and flooding. Soil erosion is inhibited and damaging winds are suppressed.

But more than anything, trees breathe in carbon dioxide which people and animals breathe out, while simultaneously breathing out large quantities of oxygen which we need to live.

Cutting trees does not diminish this because it is young trees that perform this better than the older ones. The tree you use this Christmas will be replaced next spring with a seedling to start the job all over again.

In addition to the environmental advantages of cut Christmas trees, our economy is impacted each season as small business owners supply their beautiful product to thousands of homes all over our country.

At Waterloo Gardens we sell Fraser Fir and Douglas Fir which most people are familiar with, but in addition we bring both Noble and Nordman Firs across the country from the Northwest. We have a great selection of sizes and varieties!
