Has anyone done a eco-benefit comparison of live v. plastic Christmas trees?

    Yes, many people have. Neither are great green options, so instead consider a live tree. It’s a living, potted version of your Christmas tree that you can plant in your yard when you’re done with it. They do require a bit of maintenance. If a live tree isn’t an option, consider how you’ll be using your tree. A fake tree that is used for many years has a smaller impact on the environment than cutting down a real tree each of those years. But if you’ll only use your artificial tree for a year or two, get a real tree from an organic managed tree farm nearest your house.
