Cutting your own Christmas tree is better for the environment than buying one pre-cut. Precut trees are often transported long distances and many of them remain unsold on Christmas Eve, adding to the waste. A tree cut locally is fresher and cutting it yourself is great family fun. To find a “choose and cut” Christmas tree farms in Massachusetts go to http://www.christmas-trees.org/retailers-county.htm. After Christmas, cut the branches off the trunk and use them to cover gardens, keeping sleeping perennials can from suffering freeze and thaw cycles as the winter goes on.
