American Christmas Tree Association Helps You Get the Most From the Holiday Season

  • When it comes to making one of the most important purchases of the holiday season, consumers are faced with what can seem to be an overwhelming amount of choices. But no matter what Christmas tree you choose to celebrate the holidays, artificial or farmed, the American Christmas Tree Association urges consumers to make educated decisions about the trees they purchase for their families.
  • There are Christmas trees for every budget and every lifestyle.
  • According to the U.S. Fire Administration, if your household includes a farmed tree in its festivities, keep the tree well watered. Typically shorts in electrical lights or open flames from trees placed too close to fireplaces, candles, lighters or matches start tree fires. Dry and neglected trees are a fire waiting to happen.
  • Consumers should feel great about purchasing a Christmas tree. Neither an artificial Christmas tree nor a farmed tree has a significant impact on the environment.
