Keep holidays alive with living, plantable trees
A live tree won’t last long inside, so plan to acclimatize it first.
O, Christmas tree, O, Christmas tree, how we lovingly bring you into our home, decorate you with only the finest ornaments (or the most sentimental) and then, a month later, throw you out.
Could there be a way you could go on living past the season and for years to come? Yes. Buy a living Christmas tree, one that lives for a short time indoors and then gets planted or potted outside.
Some evergreen tree varieties actually can make it in our climate. Look for Aleppo pine, Italian stone pine, Leyland cypress, Afghan pine or a juniper at a local gardening
Leyland cypress will keep its very dense, conical form as it grows out.
