Not Every Christmas Tree Finds a Home

Posted: Updated:

It was a good year to sell Christmas trees, but not every tree found a home. At Cashman Nursery, only four remain. And they'll be taken to the Bismarck landfill, where they'll most likely be made into mulch. But while the trees aren't around for long, they still provide benefits to both the environment and economy.

"It doesn't bother me that these trees are cut down, because when Christmas trees are grown, they're grown on purpose. And it creates a lot of jobs. And I think twelve or fourteen trees are grown for every one that gets cut down as a Christmas tree," says Dan Cashman, Cashman Nursery.

In past years, conservation groups used Christmas trees to create habitat for fish.
