Get your holiday swag on this year.  It’s a perfect time to get a head start on the holidays.  

Not many folks realize it, but that beautiful bushy tree you set up each year carries some risky business with it.  The traditional tree is made of plastics, chemicals, and treated with flame retardants that can off gas and possibly cause health issues.  The real trees can also bring some unwanted friends in, or potentially harmful chemicals used by the farm to keep bugs off. 

So I have a treat for you. There is a company that really does this non-toxic holiday decor right.  So after you consider the Pro’s And Con’s of Artificial Vs Real tree, you may want to look into a new, artificial, non-toxic, and realistic christmas tree through Balsam Hill.
