Artificial trees dont shed their needles. At the end of the season you can put it in the box and store it until next year. (That may or may not be an asset depending on how much storage space youve got.) Artificial trees will last an average six to 10 years. Down side of real Christmas trees Most commercial trees get regular sprayings of herbicides, pesticides and fungicides. There are standards regulating how long growers have to wait between the last spraying and when the tree is cut so its more of an issue of environmental quality where the trees are grown than for the end buyer. In addition, some growers spray their trees with green coloring to make them look nicer. Driven by public demand, the industry is experimenting with more earth-friendly farming (like using ladybugs to eat aphids instead of killing them with pesticides, keeping the trees green with fertilizer, etc). Several tree farms around the country have been certified organic but at this point theyre still rare. The down side of cutting your own means less habitat for birds and animals, potential over-cutting of young trees, and cutting in places like muskegs where the trees grow very slowly.

Republican candidate Kennedy has tied himself closely to the president-elect, joining his calls to drain the swamp. Vice President-elect Mike Pence is visiting the state on Saturday to rally Trump supporters behind Kennedy.

Turns out she didnt win, he said, adding, Im going to make sure the same thing doesnt happen to [Kennedy] . Campbell could be just the person to pull off an upset, his supporters say. He has a history of winning over Republican-leaning voters: in 2014, he took 61 percent of the vote inhis North Louisiana district, 20 percentage points better than then-Senator Mary Landrieu. And Campbells pro-life, pro-gun stances not typical for a Democrat may help him persuade Republican voters to cross party lines. Republicans, however, have countered that Campbell is trying to buy the election with outside support. Whatever happens in Louisiana, it wont tip the balance of the Senate. Republicans already hold a slim majority, with 51 of the chambers 100 seats. But a victory could be a boost for Democrats to end this election cycle, and make winning the Senate back slightly easier come 2018.
