Did you know that the Nova Scotian Christmas tree industry is completely sustainable?
Christmas tree stands regenerate naturally and are never clearcut – growers are in no way contributing to deforestation. On the contrary, one to three new trees are cultivated or planted every time a fully grown tree is harvested. Tree growers in Nova Scotia pick and choose which trees they will harvest each year, meaning their stands are left intact to act as habitat for wildlife and serene areas for recreation. In addition, real trees can be reused, recycled or composted after Christmas is over. Real Christmas trees are renewable, reusable and biodegradable and never end up in a landfill at the end of their lifetime.
