North Dakota Forest Service recommends real Christmas tree for holidays
Put up a real Christmas tree this holiday season. That’s the message from the North Dakota Forest Service, which says live trees benefit the environment from the time they are planted until after the holiday season. While they’re growing, real Christmas trees support life by absorbing carbon dioxide and giving off fresh oxygen.
