The great debate between Real and Artificial Christmas Trees has been going on for ages.

Real vs. Artificial Christmas Trees:

Artificial Trees:

  • Environmental friendly. You don’t have to cut down a tree.
  • Cost. Artificial trees can be reused every year.
  • Convenience. Collapsible and easy to store. No need to Haul a huge tree through your door.
  • Maintenance. Doesn’t need watering and no need to pick up pine needles from the floor.

However, going artificial does have its drawbacks. Many experts believe artificial trees actually have a greater negative environmental impact.

Today’s artificial trees are typically manufactured with metal and polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a non-biodegradable, petroleum-derived plastic. Also, many of these trees are imported from China giving a negative impact to the local economy.

Winnipeg offers a Christmas tree recycling program that keeps trees out of our landfills. Last year, the program collected 14,500 trees.
