    why not just get a fake Christmas tree its such a waist when people get reel trees then just throw them away in a couple of weeks.

    Because Fake Christmas trees get put into land fill and real ones decompose or are used for fixing wildlife habitats.

    yeah but a fake Christmas tree you can use for twenty years. it takes so much out of the soil to be used for a weak.

    mabye we should sit down, it sounds like your not strong from the waist down

    However, most people don't use them for twenty years, they use them for one, then throw them out.
