"• Christmas trees have been sold commercially in the U.S. since 1850. • As many as 36 million Christmas trees are produced each year and 95 percent are shipped or sold directly from Christmas tree farms. In North America, there are more than 15,000 Christmas tree growers. • The best selling trees are Scotch pine, Douglas fir, Noble fir, Fraser fir, Virginia pine, Balsam fir and white pine. • Over one million acres have been planted in Christmas trees. • More than 2,000 trees are usually planted per acre. On average, 1000 to 1500 survive. In the north, 750 survive. • This year, 73 million new Christmas trees will be planted. • It takes 6 to 10 years to grow a mature Christmas tree. These facts are provided by the University of Illinois Extension. If you would like to read more, the address is www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/trees/."

"We certainly hope you've chosen your Christmas tree by now, but even stragglers will find plenty of useful information on this University of Illinois site. (The rest of us can while away the last hours before Christmas with plenty of interesting trivia and helpful tips.) The links to other holiday-themed pages are particularly well-chosen - the page on Photographing Holiday Lights is one we'll be bookmarking, and we wouldn't have missed the singing ornaments for the world. All this linking hither and yon is sweet and a little old-fashioned; what more could you want from a Christmas page? - FBC/HSS"
