Now that Thanksgiving is behind us and we’ve officially kicked off the Christmas eason, The Backyard Naturalists are having a conversation about Christmas trees. In this episode, they weigh the benefits of both live and artificial trees then, offer facts, figures and a little trivia about the iconic holiday tradition such as . . .
- Which state grows the most Christmas trees in the United States?
- Which county in our home state of North Carolina grows the most trees?
- How many years does it take to mitigate the environmental impact of owning an artificial tree?
- What’s the average growth time for a Christmas tree before it’s harvested?
