The Eco-Xmas Tree
“I never liked artificial Christmas trees because they looked fake. But now, I can have all of the components of a real Christmas tree without having to kill one!”
- Sam Artioli
Enjoy the Beauty and Aroma of a Fresh Cut Christmas Tree Without the Guilt! Build an Eco-Christmas Tree!”
Are you stressing over the dilemma of whether to buy a live Christmas tree or one that’s made of plastic? Buying a live tree each year is a wasteful tradition that contributes needlessly to deforestation. But a plastic tree just feels artificial; you can’t enjoy the fresh smell of real pine in your house.
This book walks you through the simple steps to build your own solution—the EcoTree. What is the EcoTree? It consists of a wooden “trunk,” made of 2” x 4”s, which is attached to a wooden base. Simply drill holes in the trunk and then place pine branches into each hole. With the EcoTree, you can make your tree using your choice of tree branches. Each Christmas, you adorn the “trunk” with fresh-cut pine branches. Never again will you have bare sports on your Christmas tree; all you have to do is drill another hole in the trunk and place a branch into the hole to cover the bare spot. When you’re done, the EcoTree looks and smells just like a real Christmas tree—the only difference is that you aren’t killing a tree each year. Just like a real Christmas tree, you can hang ornaments on it and place presents beneath it. The whole family will enjoy the scent of fresh pine but no one will notice the difference
