    For every tree cut down, a new one is planted Plus Christmas trees provide lots of oxygen to the air. Fake trees are not biodegradable and don't compare to the sent of a real tree.

    In my opinion, it may be a little bit more messy but suck it up its once a year......get out the vacuum and deal with it, lol!

    Not to get too serious about a gag thread, but all of that oxygen you purport is made on tree farms is a fallacy, as they release greenhouse gases after they're chopped down. Like any kind of farming, there are consequences to the environment. Farming has proven to be a necessary evil, as it degrades the planet, and cuts into natural diversity. At least fake trees can be reused year after year.icon_confused.gif

    We decided to hunt down a reindeer, killed it and stuffed it so that it can stand beside the fake tree every year. Now that's how you respect the environment!

    No. Try virtual trees! More of a selection of lighting effects and decorations. Access it anywhere from iPhone or home 100" TV.

    I used to work on a christmas tree farm for extra cash when I was a teenager. We'd spend all summer shaping and training those things for your pleasure. It seemed like an utterly pointless exercise. I swung a machete all day long to make them conical and wore thick leather chaps to keep from slashing my own leg. It was impossible to wash all of the sap out of my hair, so I went around all summer smelling like an air freshener.

    For the most part, they were grown in clear-cuts, up in the forest, planted just after a timber harvest. Then as you gradually harvest the christmas trees, it thins them out. By the time they start getting too big to harvest, the clear-cut starts looking more like "forest" again. Last time I tried to find one of those places, I couldn't spot it any more.

    For future reference. Good for cleaning off both tree sap and beach tar...

    But... what do we think of any tree products? Houses, furniture, decorative items, paper, etc? Is that murder, too?

    Here in warm South Florida having a real Christmas tree is a bit problematic, so we have an artificial we reuse. But it still consumes resources. Does that make us evil? icon_confused.gif

    Yes, mineral oil or unscented baby oil cleans up the sap pretty good, with some time and effort. The only problem was, in those days it was over an hour drive each way bumping up and down the mountain, and a bit of time to eat and sleep... By the time I could get all the sap scrubbed off it would be time to go back up and do it all over again.

    Next, we hunt and taxidermy an entire family with a newborn, and put it beside the tree!

    You can have the next family that sneaks on to my land to destroy and steal one of my fir trees. They're rare at this elevation! But the 12-gauge does sort of make a mess for taxidermy I suppose.

    Real tree, real lights.

    Found an example for you guys on youtube (not my family or anyone I know):



    PS Yes, it is wasteful. So is other stuff.

    First and foremost I would like to say that this post is ridiculous. Harvesting a Christmas tree is no different than cattle farming or harvesting the acres and acres of apple trees you have growing on your orchard. What bothers me most is the fact that you chose to attempt to start a new wave of thought on pine tree harvesting instead of the mishaps brought about by catching tuna (i.e. the snagging and killing of dolphins).

    The are so many pertinent issues, but you chose a tree... A tree that isn't in danger of becoming extinct.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidTree farms, animal farms....

    The exploitation of other life forms by human beings has been pretty consistent throughout modern times.

    The years it takes to grow a pine tree so that it can be chopped down and sold - only to dry up and die in one's home in just a matter of a few short weeks is such an incredibly insipid concept.


    Now, there is the "Human Farm"!
