This season, make sure to buy a fresh, real Maryland Christmas tree. By buying a real Maryland Christmas tree, you will not only be supporting our Maryland farmers, but you will also be making the overall best “green” choice for the environment and local economy. While they’re growing, Christmas trees absorb carbon dioxide and other gases and emit fresh oxygen, unlike artificial trees which are typically made in China and are petroleum-based. Go to the “Find Me Local” Section of Maryland’s Best to find a local Christmas tree farm near you. Also, check out the video to the right featuring Bryce Adelhardt of Applewood Farms.
