Top 5 Design Eco-Christmas Trees

At this time of year individuals are contemplating whether to buy a real Christmas Tree or design Eco-Christmas Trees.  U.S. customers bought about 33 million real trees last year compared to 14.7 million artificial trees according to the National Christmas Tree Association.

As we know, real Christmas trees are not taken from the forest anymore, they are grown on a plantations that spread throughout the United States and Canada. However, these trees are often grown with pesticides that are toxic to the ground and indoor use could affect people’s health. In some state, like California, where the issue about drought has been going on for almost three years, artificial trees are the best solution for the environment.

These artificial trees don’t use unnecessary water.  An artificial tree can be reused, they are inexpensive, eco-friendly and many of them have unique design elements.Here’s a list of the top five Design Christmas Trees you should look at this year:
