Governor’s Christmas tree harvested in state forest [video]

Half a million Christmas trees are harvested each holiday season from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state's economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan, and they can be chipped and used for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
