I just want to encourage people to buy a live tree for Christmas this year, keep it in your house for a few weeks, and then plant it, possibly in your yard.
This year I won’t have a Christmas tree, because Christmas is not really celebrated here (very quiet holiday, and also no expectations). But I remember when I was younger, my family would buy a live tree, then plant it, usually in January.
Passing by our old house recently, I could see how big these trees had grown- they had really become majestic additions to the yard, street and house.
A live tree is also symbolic of a different level of consciousness, which is aware of the human impact on the environment. The gesture to buy a live tree is small, but represents something nonetheless.
Let me know if you do it!
Have a green Christmas!
