 In Blog, Tree Pittsburgh

As a pro-tree orga­ni­za­tion, you may be sur­prised to learn Tree Pitts­burgh encour­ages the pur­chase of real pines to cel­e­brate the hol­i­days! How­ev­er, buy­ing a real Christ­mas tree is a great way to pro­mote open green space in the state of Penn­syl­va­nia. This year, you can sup­port local farm­ers and Tree Pitts­burgh by pre-order­ing your tree right here.

Christ­mas tree farms sta­bi­lize soil, pro­tect water sup­plies, and pro­vide refuge for wildlife while cre­at­ing scenic green belts. Often, Christ­mas trees are grown on soils that could not sup­port oth­er crops.

Anoth­er way buy­ing a real Christ­mas tree helps the envi­ron­ment is that fake trees are made from petro­le­um prod­ucts man­u­fac­tured in oth­er parts of the world and trav­el to the US via freight and diesel fuel. Final­ly, real Christ­mas trees absorb car­bon diox­ide and oth­er gas­es, emit­ting fresh oxygen.

Buy­ing real trees also sup­ports the local econ­o­my. Real Christ­mas trees sup­port Penn­syl­va­nia farm­ers. Did you know Penn­syl­va­nia is #2 in the nation for Christ­mas tree pro­duc­tion? It’s true! All but two coun­ties in the entire state sup­port tree farms. Buy­ing local, live Christ­mas trees sup­ports thou­sands of jobs in Pennsylvania.
