This is awesome. While I know they are planted and harvested for Christmas, it makes me sad to just throw them out when we are done with them each year. This is certainly an option that I would use if it was available in my area. George Strait Christmas Tree sweater It’s great to save trees by reusing year after year but what most people don’t realize is that when tree farmers harvest their trees for Christmas they have already planted more trees then harvested. When they harvest they then pull or grind the stumps and use the same land again to replant. It’s an ongoing process that usually results in more trees being planted than harvested. No need to feel bad about buying a real tree.

We have always bought a rooted tree and after Xmas planted it out in our field – not all survive but a fair few have done over the years – when they get too tall we trim and burn on the wood-burner. The last few years we have found arthritic joints have meant we have had to buy ready-potted ones from our Homebase store – but this year they had all sold out – so we had to get a cut tree in a stand from the local nursery. George Strait Christmas Tree sweater I would certainly support any business who did this. Love this. We have an Italian Stone Pine in a pot that was our tree three years ago. And it’s never going into the ground on our modest suburban plot. Across the street, looks my neighbors planted one many years ago. It is formidable!

I planted lots of sites spruce and year after year someone came and in the cover of darkness and stole a tree. The last one to disappear was a large one that they had to cut down. Must have been for a large house. This potted tree is an excellent idea. Very green thinking.
This person or persons who took the life of my trees will benefit from Karma. I think this is actually a good idea. I know a bunch of you are saying that trees are renewable and farmable. While that is a true statement, it has always seemed so wasteful. Why cut down a tree to use for a couple of weeks? Why create that much extra refuse? For those saying the trees are made into mulch, who are you trying to kid? Those trees go right to the curb and sent to the dump. Nothing altruistic. Just more trash.
