Rent a Christmas Tree?

submitted on December 22, 2009 by HouTex in "Member's Lounge"
Today is the first time I heard of this, but apparently a company on the west coast has offered the choice of renting a tree to people since 1992!

This company in Portland, Oregon delivers about 400 5-, 6-, and 7-foot potted trees each year and then picks them up after the New Year to plant them in watersheds all over the Northwest. Other services are springing up (even in the UK) to turn Christmas into a tree planting holiday to remove air pollution and help the environment.

    Wow that's an awesome idea. Too bad it costs so much though but given the prices to buy one and throw it out, it's not too bad.

    It has been two years as we get away without a tree. We usually go to Wisconsin for Christmas and New Years and it makes no sense to buy a tree just so that we could leave it behind.
