Environmental Facts

A myth that is prevalent in this era of greater ecological awareness holds the notion that artificial trees are environmentally friendly. This is simply not true. Artificial trees, often replaced every 5 or 6 years, do not decompose thus adding to the ever increasing problem of waste disposal.

Commercially grown Christmas trees such as those grown at Vivian Plantation are farmed, not cut from the forest. Harvesting trees farmed for this purpose is not harmful to the environment. In fact young trees, such as those grown as Christmas trees, produce more oxygen than older trees and are therefore even better for the environment than older forested areas.

Freshness and health are the most important characteristics even in harvest your own trees. At Vivian Plantation the health of the evergreens on the property is a key consideration for the Grose family. Trees are grown using the most natural means possible.
