Christmas Trees: Facts on Christmas Tree Types and Species

Here is some detailed information on Christmas trees.

Trees that are generally used as Christmas trees are evergreen conifers such as pine, fir, or spruce. These trees are grown on tree farms and then cut to be sold as Christmas trees in late November. It takes 7 to 10 years to grow a Christmas tree from a seedling to an 8 foot tree ready for sale.

The custom of decorating Christmas Trees began in Germany around the 15th or 16th century. Original Christmas trees were decorated with candles which were replaced by christmas lights with the introduction of electricity. Most Christmas trees are now decorated with LED lights which conserve energy.

Christmas trees are decorated in a host of different styles but commonly use christmas lights and a variety of Christmas decorations including tinsel, candy canes, and garlands. A Christmas tree is often topped off with a tree topper of an angel or a star.

Many towns and cities decorate a huge outdoor Christmas tree for everyone to admire. They hold a tree lighting ceremony and often have a Santa Claus parade for the children to enjoy.

One example of this is the Christmas tree at the Rockefeller Center in New York City. This Norway Spruce is decorated with over 45,000 LED lights and has a 9.5 foot Swarovski star tree topper.

Tips For Buying A Fresh Christmas Tree

Families enjoy the Christmas tradition of going to a tree farm to pick out their Christmas tree. Here are a 6 tips for choosing the perfect tree to decorate your home this Christmas.

  1. Don't buy too big. The tree will appear smaller out on the farm. Measure both the height and width of the tree to make sure it will fit when you get it home.
  2. Do the freshness test! Run your hand down the branch, the needles should not come off easily. A dry tree will lose its needles excessively!
  3. Transportation. Don't forget the tools and muscle power needed to load the tree in your truck or on the roof of the car. Bring ropes, blanket to secure the tree for the ride home. Next step will be to get it in the house!
  4. Don't forget to water the tree once it is home. Live trees need water to prevent them drying out. Make sure your tree stand includes a water reservoir. Dry trees are a major fire hazard.
  5. Safety first. Make sure the lights that you use to decorate the tree are in excellent working order and that you don't overload the electrical circuit. Tree fires are a serious threat during the holiday season. Always unplug the tree lights when you leave the house or go to bed.
  6. After the holidays do not use your Christmas tree for firewood. Instead, you can recycle your tree. Most municipalities have a Christmas tree recycling program where they pick up trees from the curbside and turn them into mulch for use in parks and open spaces.

Artificial Christmas Trees

Some people prefer to use an artificial Christmas tree rather than buying a natural Christmas tree each year. These trees are usually made of polyvinyl chloride and shaped to resemble a real Christmas Tree. They are decorated in a similar manner.

Christmas Tree Recycling

Approximately 2 weeks after the Christmas Holidays many towns collect Christmas trees that have been put at the curbside. They are then recycled and made into compost for use in your garden.
