Christmas Tree Myth... BUSTED.

Every year we see the poor little teddy bear helplessly in front of a flaming Christmas tree and the words of a "fireman" in the background reminding us to have a safe Christmas. Our friends at the American Christmas Tree Association would have us believe a real tree is more of a fire hazard than an artificial tree and they are right... If you are using last year's Christmas tree that is...

The Michigan Christmas Tree Association worked with their local fire department to put this myth to the test. They actually beat Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman in testing to see if a real tree combusted more quickly than an artificial tree.

The findings for some were a relief and for others it exposed their false advertising.

Read Extinguishing the Christmas Tree Fire Myth which explains in detail the tests and results of this experiment. If you don't want to read it skip to the pictures at the bottom. They tell the whole story on their own.

Be safe. Get a real tree. You can even order your Christmas tree online and have it shipped straight to your door from our farm.

Here is a link I found on the National Christmas Tree Association's web-site. Enjoy.
