Christmas tree shopping tips from Kim & Katie’s Christmas Trees


Bel Air News & Views sponsor Kim from Kim & Katie’s Christmas Trees says if you’re buying a Christmas tree this season, a real one is better for the environment than a fake one for the following reasons:

  • Trees are farm produced and grown in the U.S. and Canada
  • Trees support complex eco-systems and the plant tissue is 100% biodegradable
  • Trees absorb carbon dioxide and are PVC and Lead Free
  • Trees can be recycled in a variety of ways
  • In North America, 40-50 million trees were planted in 2007
  • For every tree harvested three seedlings are planted

Kim sells  Fraser and Douglas firs cut fresh weekly at a York, Pa. farm as well as fresh wreaths, evergreen garlands and gifts. She offers free drilling which holds the trees in easy-to-operate stands she sells that come with bags that catch falling needles. Prices vary according to tree size and type.

Kim & Katie’s Christmas Trees is open noon to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday;  8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at 2205 E. Churchville Road, next to Richard’s Seafood, across from Harford Community College at the intersection of Shucks Road.
