Reasons 1 to 18 Not To Kill A Tree For The Holidays

 


 

As of  2019, according to a Google search, over 81% of those who have holiday trees have ones they can use year after year and not axed trees.

 

1. Massive tree cutting is the single biggest cause of global climate extremes, drought, fire. Each average sized tree evaporates 42 gallons of moisture daily becoming mist, then clouds, then rain. Every leaf, blade of grass, and pine needle are necessary.

 

2. Many parks and fields have been totally stripped of fir trees by those who have axed them so that they may slowly die in people's living rooms. The result is forests with no evergreens.

 

3. Raccoons, squirrels, birds, beehives and butterflies are smashed or evicted when the trees are axed.

 

4. Pine trees with dry needles coming into contact with hot electric lights are a cause of fire

 

5. Needle cleanup is a timewasting chore.

 

6. Trees can easily be toppled by crawling babies or playing children, endangering them. Dogs and cats are sometimes confused smelling the outdoor fragrance of dead trees sometimes urinate on or under them.

 

7. Trash pick up of dead trees is expensive and an energy waste for cashstrapped municipalities

 

8. Landfills are clogged by the tree carcasses. Their replacement landfills create even more deforestation.

 

9. In terms of very large trees, lumberjacks have one of the 5 most dangerous occupations in the world.

 

10. USA Today itself a deforester reported that of 95 million households with a tree, 81% of the homes have an artificial one.

 

11. Numerous studies by Chandra Bose, inventor in the 1890's of the radio which he demonstrated in 1895 as well as Luther Bank, researcher recorded in the book The Secret Life Of Plants etc. indicate trees have feelings and should not be killed.

 

12. Trees were not axed for Christmas until the 16th Century in Germany. Queen Victoria brought the tradition to England.

 

13. Small eggsacs of spiders or bugs can come into the home unobserved on the branches. In the warmer house temperatures they can hatch out.

 

14. Artificial trees save a lot of money, over a period of years over $1000

 

15. The trees take years or decades to grow. They are killed for a few days to 1 month display.


16. In 2020 a massive tree which grew for decades

in the forests axed for a shortlived amusement for

Rockefeller Center patrons was discovered to have a small

baby owl stowed away in its branches.

 

17  For many Christians, Christmas is a celebration of

the birth of Jesus who was a vegetarian Essene and wanted

no sentient being killed for his birthday.


18. Artificial trees save time.

 

Let the green Christmas trees
unmolested in the forest be.
