<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Do people usually have Christmas trees in Costa Rica? Are they grown "in country" or do you have to import them from someplace like Canada? <p><hr></blockquote><p>We have plenty of tress in this country, but now in order to protect the nature, people prefers to use chinese plastic trees.<br><br>
chinese plastic trees.<br>Holy Cow.<br><br>All our trees are imported in from Oregon and Washington state. 500 thousand trees this year. All the trees are grown on tree farms. In general like wheat they are harvested.<br><br>In January local groups like Boy Scouts and other non-profit orgs solicit donations to pick up your tree for 5 bucks. They then take them down to a temporary location that grinds the trees into Mulch. The mulch is then delivered into locations around the island so that people can pick up FREE mulch for gardens or farms. Hence the trees are re-used and the non profit orgs gets some bucks.<br><br>I always pay the 5 bucks to the Boy Scouts - since I was a Eagle Scout once.<br><br>
