"Consumers should not be concerned about the environmental impact of having a Christmas tree," Thomas Harman told "Compared to their other impacts, it is very tiny."

Harman is the founder of Balsam Hill, which sells artificial Christmas trees. He's also on the board of the American Christmas Tree Association (ACTA), a nonprofit whose self-proclaimed goal is to educate the public about these holiday flora. Two years ago, the ACTA commissioned a life-cycle analysis study (from an outside organization) to look at both real and artificial options from seedling or oil, as the case may be, to tree.
That fake trees, which are typically made of plastic and end up in landfills, have essentially the same carbon footprint as something from nature is a hard concept for many to wrap their heads around, Harman said. "If you purchase a farm-grown Christmas tree and use it for a year and throw it away, and purchase an artificial and use it for a year and throw it away, then the farm-grown is going to be better. But nobody does that. Rather, they tend to use it for nearly a decade, on average, typically passing it along for a second life.
The minimal use necessary to make an artificial tree green is about seven years. Use it for three and a real tree is better, Harman said. You should also pay attention to distance driven and greenery disposal, he added.
Harman has an answer for that: "If you use an artificial tree for 10 years, you need 10 trees, and that is 70 years' worth of growing trees.

At Balsam Hill™, we are committed to creating the best Christmas trees on the market. Our founder, Thomas Harman, was inspired to start Balsam Hill by a family member who was allergic to live trees but wanted to create a festive atmosphere in his home during the holidays.
