The holidays are here and most will have a Christmas tree to decorate in their home. Instead of getting a cut tree how about a live tree that you could plant after the holiday season is over. In the United States, the tradition of decorating fresh cut or live trees inside the house for Christmas dates back to the mid- to late-1800s. Today, there are many choices for live trees and shrubs that can be used as your holiday tree, including Balsam fir, Blue spruce, Douglas fir, Nordmann fir and Norway spruce (among others). If you decide to use a living specimen, you’ll have a tree to plant that will live for years to come. Check out this link on the best ways to care for your tree during the holidays.
