Why An Artificial Christmas Tree Is The Best Gift You Can Give Your Family!
We explored the pros that make artificial Christmas trees so wonderful and gathered a festive selection of faux trees that may be right for your home!
It’s not Christmas without a Christmas tree! As Santa’s flight swiftly approaches, it’s time to pick our trees and get decorating! As you count down the days until Christmas, you’ll be able to enjoy spending time and relaxing with your loved ones as you enjoy your tree’s decorations. But before you can enjoy the perfect Christmas tree, you have to pick it out! If you’re torn between opting for a real tree or an artificial tree, consider these 6 pros that come with choosing an artificial Christmas tree that could make the decision a lot easier for you.
1.) Artificial Christmas trees significantly lower the risk of a holiday fire occurring in your home. While your Christmas tree should always be placed away from heat sources, real trees are three times more likely to catch fire than artificial trees. Plus, many artificial trees are now made to be flame resistant.
2.) Opting for an artificial tree is a sustainable, environmentally-friendly choice. An estimated 36 million trees are cut down each year to be Christmas trees within the United States. You don’t have to be a part of that.
3.) While artificial trees and real trees can cost roughly the same amount at the time of purchase, choosing the artificial tree is ultimately the better investment. Artificial trees can be used for many years before they need to be replaced, so that is a better deal than annually buying a new tree that can only be used once.
4.) Since many artificial trees are already pre-lit, you don’t have to struggle to light your Christmas tree yourself. This adds ease and convenience to your decorating. Since the tree is artificial, it also requires no maintenance to keep it looking fresh and alive. There will be no tree stand to remember to fill with water or needles to sweep up.
5.) Did you know that live Christmas trees can make your pet very sick? If ingested, the oils produced by fir trees can irritate your pet’s mouth and stomach, causing excessive vomiting and drooling. Meanwhile, both pine and fir needles that are swallowed by pets can cause gastrointestinal upset, life-threatening blockages within your pet’s digestive tract, and even puncture your dog or cat internally. And don’t even get us started on how the water keeping your tree alive could turn noxious with bacteria, mold, and fertilizer that could be harmful to both pets and children. With that said, it’s better to choose a non-toxic artificial tree that won’t hurt any curious children or pets.
6.) Your Christmas tree will always be the perfect size for your home. Since you will know the exact size of the Christmas tree before you buy it, you can measure to make sure it will fit through the front door and is the right size for the spot you have in mind.
