Heading to a Christmas tree farm on a crisp weekend morning is a family tradition for so many, and if you live in the Lehigh Valley, there are a number of places where you can go to pick the perfect one!
Did you know that Pennsylvania has more Christmas tree farms than any other state in the US? According to the 2002 USDA Agricultural Census, nearly 2000 PA farms produce about 1.7 million cut Christmas trees every year. Why is this important?
Buying fresh trees to turn into a holiday display helps support local farmers and is actually BETTER for the environment than purchasing artificial Christmas trees. Although artificial Christmas trees are reusable from year to year, eventually, they are likely to end up in a landfill. Trees that come from Christmas tree farms are replaced every year, and once used, can be recycled into bird feeding stations or mulch, which is widely used in gardening and landscaping.
