"Is cutting down a tree really being a good friend of nature? Well, yes. If you follow some tried-and-true advice both before and after you buy it, you can have your tree and save it, too. Long after the lights and tinsel are packed away for the season, a real tree can be a gift to wildlife," writes Gretel Schueller in 365 Days of Christmas.
