for the 25 million real trees grown and sold in the US each year, close to 75 million more are replanted
Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) October 20, 2011
“Real trees support life” is a statement from the National Christmas Tree Association. On their website, http://www.christmastree.org/myths.cfm, this organization details how live Christmas trees do so because real trees are a renewable resource – once one tree is cut, three more are planted (for the 25 million real trees grown and sold in the US each year, close to 75 million more are replanted). Unlike artificial trees, real trees absorb carbon dioxide and other gases and emit oxygen. Plus - real trees stabilize soil, provide a wildlife refuge and protect water supplies. A compelling case can be made about the benefits of real trees to our environment.
Real Christmas trees do present more challenges to homeowners. Just getting them in the stand is sometimes difficult - especially larger trees. Straightening and turning them can be more problematic because they are heavier and bushier than artificial trees. Now there is a product that can help. The WonderStand™ Christmas tree stand from Dalen Products allows you to put your tree in a cup, then place the cup in a base (no need to get under the tree to tighten bolts). To decorate, rotate your tree 360 degrees while you hang lights and ornaments. The stand also pivots for easy tree straightening. The WonderStand™ Christmas tree stand will hold a tree trunk up to 6 inches in diameter and a tree that is ten (10) feet tall.
An additional concern with real trees is keeping them adequately watered. The WonderStand™ has a large reservoir which holds up to one gallon of water and there is an overspill feature when the reservoir is full that prevents water from getting to the floor.

Since most Christmas trees are grown in the US and the WonderStand™ is made in the US, enjoying a live Christmas tree placed in the WonderStand™ is a uniquely American way to celebrate the holidays.
