That'll be the biggest human interest story of the season in Canada , someone getting caught cutting downs shitty arsed pines on crown land and being fined enough to furbish an arborist's exorbitant lifestyle .
If you have a fake tree you have to have fake presents under it.
Real trees....if you're logging just to have a Christmas for a month that's probably bad. They can be farmed like anything else and turned into compost after. Waste comes from shipping trees in from 1000 miles away instead of doing it local.
Fake trees...metal, plastic, non-renewable resources. Mined, fuel burned. Like anything else plastic it'll be trashing up the place 1000 years after we're dead and gone.
My cousins in BC were tree planters. It's a stoner lifestyle. Plant trees and weed. Map your weed plants. Hike. Toke. Plant.
Get laid off at the first snow and collect government Dole.
Until the back goes out at 45 years of age.
