Will your Christmas tree be real or fake?

Buying a natural Christmas tree is a win-win—it brings the beauty and aroma of Ontario's forests inside your home for the holidays.

A real tree is eco-friendly and supports the provincial economy. More than 500 farmers produce upwards of one million Christmas trees each year in Ontario.

These trees are not plastic, nor produced and transported from overseas.
