One of the most prominent things acting as the symbol pointing to the arrival of Christmas is the Christmas tree. Purchase of the Christmas tree either a real one or an artificial one goes on increasing with the onset of Christmas season. Earlier when artificial Christmas trees were not in use, different families move out into the forest during the winter in order to find branches of spruce, pine or fir tree so that they can decorate and brighten up their living area with it in the Christmas month. Some use it only for decoration purpose while many are there who use it for the purpose of holiness. But with the upcoming of real looking artificial Christmas trees in the market people avoid searching for the real ones in the forest. Destroying a forest just for a religious festival isn’t a good thing to do.
Both the natural as well as artificial Christmas trees have their own benefits when environmental issue comes into consideration. An artificial Christmas tree is capable of reducing the cutting of many conifers every year for decoration purpose thereby decreasing the deforestation and so is environment friendly. This decreases the greenhouse effect and so helpful in balancing the temperature of the earth. So in this way you can celebrate environment-friendly Christmas.
